Our ecosystems

In his 2021 book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster”, Bill Gates broke down all global greenhouse gas emissions into the following five categories:

- Manufacturing (31% of emissions)

- Electricity generation (27% of emissions)

- Food (19% of emissions)

- Transportation (16% of emissions)

- Heating and cooling (7% of emissions)

Each of these areas is subject to a range of legal and regulatory regimes and requirements and represents a piece of the overall puzzle in the challenge to reach net-zero – a critical step in the broader challenge of addressing climate change.

In addition to being organised in traditional practice groups, Gen-R Law is organised into these sub-groups (which we call ‘Ecosystems’), with the addition of ‘Carbon Capture and Storage’, which is its own rapidly growing discipline and critical to achieving the overall net-zero goal.

Each of our lawyers is a member of at least one of these Ecosystems, which produce thought leadership and other guidance on these topics. By structuring Gen-R Law in this way, we ensure that the firm is focusing on addressing all aspects of global emissions and active in each of these spaces.
