One of the most pressing environmental issues in today's world is plastic pollution since every year 8 million tons of plastic ends up in the oceans; every item that has ever been created is still on the planet.
At Baker McKenzie we are strongly committed to environmental matters, which is why we are convinced that it´s very important to address the issue of plastic pollution within our sustainability efforts.
For this reason, as part of our B-Green Program, the Firm made a global alliance with “Plastic Oceans Foundation” in order to host screenings of the award-winning documentary "A Plastic Ocean" in all offices around the world to raise awareness among all members of the Firm.
In Mexico, we offered two screenings in each office where participants enjoyed the movie session and shared ideas on how to reduce the use of plastic in our daily basis.
This initiative was a great way to engage our people on environmental issues and from now on, through our Sustainability Committee, we will focus on carrying out initiatives within the offices that lead us to reduce the use of plastic among others.
