Schoenherr & One More Tree

Thanks to the support of Schoenherr, the One More Tree Foundation will plant up to 786 trees during the autumn season as part of its mission to reduce its carbon footprint and minimise CO2 emissions from business travel. This initiative will not only have a positive impact on the environment, but will also contribute to the creation of green spaces, underlining a commitment to protecting the planet.

Schoenherr is organizing the annual international conference Schoenherr CEE Compass Going Green on May 16th, 2024 in Warsaw. In keeping with the conference theme, we are offsetting the carbon footprint of all event-related flights to and from Warsaw.

we care

At Schoenherr, we are very conscious of the impact we have on our social and natural environment. We aim to act as a positive force and benchmark-setter in our industry, and with the establishment of our firm-wide ESG task force, we have institutionalised our commitment to our operational decisions being guided by sustainable values across all departments.

We have broadly implemented a supplier-sourcing and waste-reduction strategy minimising the environmental impact of our operations across the supply chain, sourcing consumables locally and organically wherever possible. Further, our practitioners use a CO2-offset system when booking their travel.

green expertise

Schoenherr has long recognised the value of ESG, both in terms of our internal positioning, as well as our impact as a legal service provider. Over the past decades, we have established ourselves as the go-to firm for legal advice on energy and climate matters across Austria and CEE, exemplified by our advice on over 75 % of all Austrian wind park projects, as well as commissions from governments and public institutions aiming to establish the regulatory framework for a sustainable future.

Institutionalising our legal expertise in these and many other fields relevant for ESG, we have founded a dedicated ESG team comprised of partners from various practice groups. Unifying their broad, interdisciplinary expertise, the team is equipped to provide top-tier, straight-to-the-point advice on ESG questions spanning industries and jurisdictions.

Schoenherr Supports Sustainable Development Goals

Biodiversity

In our tree-planting efforts, we place significant emphasis on biodiversity. We select tree species that are native to the region and provide food and habitat for local plant and animal species. Our aim is to create forests that mirror natural ecosystems and assist in restoring their functions.

Average Growth Rate

As the trees grow, so does our hope for restoring balance in the ecosystem and a better future. See how the trees planted with Schoenherr can grow in the coming years!
