Adam Woodhall


Adam Woodhall is the founder and Chief Executive of Lawyers for Net Zero, the fast growing non-profit supporting GCs and their teams to take climate and ESG leadership.

He is an entrepreneur, a strategy and sustainability expert, and widely published author on energy and climate change. He is also an experienced chair, facilitator and conference presenter.

The initiative now has over 100 in-house lawyers committed to net zero, with many high-profile Champions taking part in Lawyers for Net Zero’s ‘Impact Programme’, including from organisations such as Standard Chartered Bank, GSK, E.ON, Nestle and Rolls Royce.

For the 15 years before setting up Lawyers for Net Zero, Adam helped deliver climate action, both with cleantech start-ups and many household names, such as PwC, Network Rail and Allianz Insurance.

His mission is to support influential individuals to become impact multipliers and in 2020 he recognised the legal sector, particularly in-house, was an unrealised driver for achieving net zero.

Adam has built the initiative from an idea in 2020, piloting it in spring 2021, launching formally in summer 2021 and now is a rapidly growing climate non-profit.
