DLA Piper has been appointed as a legal partner to provide pro bono legal assistance to the Russian Chapter: the Russian hub for the global platform on climate change that operates under the auspices of the World Economic Forum’s Climate Governance Initiative.

According to DLA Piper, “the World Economic Forum Principles for Climate Governance for boards, published in January 2019, has prompted groups of board directors around the world to form networks committed to promoting the principles and encouraging action in their companies to deal with the implications of climate change. The CGI has already seen the launch of national chapters in eight G20 countries.” The firm will be “providing pro bono assistance with the establishment of the chapter in Russia, corporate governance matters and ongoing legal support.”

DLA Piper’s team is led by Moscow-based Partner Steffen Kaufmann and includes Brussels-based Counsel Alec Van Vaerenbergh and Moscow-based Associate Nikita Shabalin.
