In 2012, the CIS Local Counsel Forum and RULG proudly introduced our new environmental initiative, extending support to ocean conservation, protection, and restoration and presenting to the Forum's delegates and guests, one of the leading organizations in this field,
Mission Blue. Our initiative coincided with World Oceans Day (June 8).
"With every breath we take, with every drop of water we drink we depend on the existence of Earth's living ocean. These are assets worth protecting as if our lives depend on them because in no small measure they do."
