Nationally Recognized Environmental Attorneys in Southern California
Protecting Our Environment and Communities
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP, has a long history of supporting and defending communities and small businesses from the destructive practices of large corporations that put profit over the people. Now, with disasters caused by negligent companies seemingly a dime a dozen, MWA is relying on its past success in environmental cases and is stepping up even further in defense of our natural world. In addition to protecting the health and livelihood of our neighbors, the Class Action attorneys of MWA are bringing attention to the impact of bad actors on the environment and climate and seeking to hold them accountable to the significant harm they may be causing.
Our Responsibility to the Environment
It’s no secret the planet is in crisis. Climate change brought on by excessive carbon dioxide output has altered normal weather patterns across the globe, leading to drought, wildfires, and floods. Numerous animal species are threatened with extinction as the result of the removal of their natural habitats by corporations and the pollution of oceans and waterways. Although individual resolutions to minimize waste and reduce one’s carbon footprint are needed and admirable, the fact remains that corporations are the main drivers behind human-driven climate change. A report published by CDP states that 100 energy companies in the entire world are responsible for 71 percent of emissions. Beyond oil and gas companies, the top 15 food and beverage companies produce more emissions than all of Australia.
While pressure from consumers has forced some corporations to examine their environmental impact, there remain a significant number of companies who believe their purpose is the same as it has always been – make as much money as possible for its shareholders and executives, no matter the cost. According to a survey conducted by Deloitte Global, more than 90 percent of surveyed company executives believed climate change will have a negative effect on their businesses, yet 40 percent of those executives have not bothered to establish more sustainable practices internally.
For MWA, the problem is clear: corporations whose practices are the driving force behind much of climate change and habitat destruction would rather bury their heads in the sand than address their impacts.
