Mission

Taking on responsibility for the world we live in has been the key value at Unicase ever since its foundation. We value environment above all, and we do commit to accelerating to zero emission. We are legal professionals, doing everything possible in our line of business to help reduce emissions.

Mission
Based on our practice, it’s safe to say that the change across the Central Asian region should start at the top: the region requires huge transformation, which, in turn, requires huge economic and social shifts. No individual contributor alone can tilt the situation here. Hence our close work with governments and educational institutions: we tear into problems together with officials and help university students recognise the climate change importance.

We cannot just go there and stop burning of coal, gas, and oil, however much we want. What we can do, however, is enhance or redevelop those productions so that they could emit far less carbon dioxide. Next, spark meaningful conversations and help lawmakers understand the Planet’s needs. Together, we work out feasible regulations, norms, standards, and initiatives to welcome large RES projects and to make the region economy less fossil-fuel dependent. We can increase investment attractiveness, eliminate trust issues, and mitigate risks related. And we can – and must – shift mindsets to allow for the transformation.
Unicase balances the needs of society with the need to deliver profit. Alongside the net zero pursuit, our mission pertains to saving lives, making it easier for healthcare providers to help those in need, relieving burdens from forest and land management, and making our environment more energy-efficient. We do these personally, cutting air travel times, driving efficiently and substituting car rides with other forms of public transport, introducing energy-efficient homes in our lives, and planting trees.

We do these corporate-wise and welcome suppliers who develop healthcare; who utilise and introduce renewable energy sources: everything humanly possible to make Central Asia way healthier and greener than it would have been otherwise. What our Clients and our Team do now some five years back was thought of as impossible. Well, aspirations become reality once they meet Unicase goal setting cascade.
