Mewburn Ellis is delighted to partner with Oxfordshire Greentech on the Climate Solutions Conference on the 13 March at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. 

As Sustainability Champion (Eleanor Maciver) at Mewburn Ellis, I am particularly excited to be taking part in the panel session "How can we accelerate the development and deployment of climate tech" and I am proud to support bold innovators working on a wide range of sustainable technologies.

At Mewburn Ellis we are leading the charge around sustainability in the IP field, trying not only to better ourselves (as reflected in us achieving a Silver EcoVadis rating again this year, with an improved score, but also being the go to firm for green innovators looking to maximise their commercial and societal impact. 

We always love the chance to get involved with conversations around sustainable innovations, so I’m really looking forward to lending my perspective on how patent protection, as well as other IP, can be fundamental to helping circular economy businesses thrive and in turn drive us towards a more sustainable future.
