The articles provides insights into how the carbon offsetting element of our project works and the pro-bono legal support we’ve had from international firm Hogan Lovells.
Alex Dolmans, head of Hogan Lovells’ corporate and commercial practice in Spain, who has been advising Henman as part of the law firm’s pro-bono work for the past 10 years, explains how his team in Madrid created a template agreement in “plain Peruvian Spanish” for the farmers to sign.
Jenny Henman explains:

The articles also provides some insights directly from smallholder farmers involved in the project as to why they joined and the benefits they have seen.
