為響應今年地球日「氣候行動」主題,本所於2020年4月22日地球日當天舉行氣候變遷議題討論會,讓全所同仁更深入瞭解氣候改變對全世界造成的衝擊,正視此迫在眉睫,對全人類影響至關重大的問題,並立即採取行動,從自身做起。

會議由CSR小組成員透過視訊會議主持,請同仁在各自座位上透過視訊軟體參與活動。主持人搭配PPT簡報詳細講解本所的全球減碳計畫與長程目標。簡報重點包括全球氣溫上升的科學證據、未來氣溫上升情境預測、本所碳足跡分析及減碳計畫和目標,並穿插播放氣候暖化影響北極熊食物來源的短片,讓同仁瞭解到氣候變遷對地球生態造成的嚴重衝擊。簡報後,主持人也根據今日討論會的重點內容準備問題,請與會同仁搶答,增進學習效果。

CSR小組製作了五則行動標語,分別是「我要從本身做起,並鼓勵他人一起做環保」、「我要少吃一點肉」、「我要減少廚餘量」、「我在家和出門在外都要減少使用石化能源」、「我要做個負責任的消費者」,請每一位參與活動的同仁選擇自己想要承諾的一項行動,為減緩氣候變遷盡一己之力。

On 22 April, Baker McKenzie Taipei held a seminar focused on issues of climate change as part of our efforts to support this year's Earth Day theme: Climate Action. Despite of the COVID-19 pandemic which has brought many human activities to a halt, climate change is not going to stop and remains a challenging issue to 7.7 billion population on earth.

This seminar was hosted by CSR members via videoconference. The speaker provided detailed information and discussions about the firm's global carbon remission reduction goals with PPT demonstration. The key information covered during the presentation includes scientific evidence on the increase of global temperature, scenario predictions on future temperature rise, analysis of the firm's carbon footprints, and our global carbon emission reduction program. A short video talking about impact on polar bear food sources by global warming was shown to help participants better understand the impact of climate change on the ecological system is an urgent issue no one should and can afford to ignore. After the talk, there was a quiz time for participants to answer questions on what had been shared at the seminar. All winners received an environmental-friendly gift with nominal value as encouragement.

The CSR team created five action plan cards. Each card shows an action plan: educate yourself and others about environmental issues, consider eating less meat, reduce food waste, reduce fossil fuel use at home and while traveling, and be a responsible consumer. Participants were asked to pick up one or more cards and commit themselves to take actions and do something to slow down climate change.
