As part of its international outreach, CPR is promoting the 21st Century Corporate ADR Pledge worldwide by working with other international ADR groups. As the founder of early ADR pledges, CPR is in a unique position to serve as an international clearinghouse for pledges to strengthen and solidify all mutually supportive ADR pledges. Through a network of international agreements, including mutual recognition agreements, CPR and other international ADR groups enable corporations operating internationally to seamlessly interface with other corporations recognizing the value of ADR.
CPR is proud to announce that it has signed Pledge Mutual Recognition Agreements with the Paris-based Centre de Médiation et d’Arbitrage de Paris (CMAP) in France, the Irish Commercial Mediation Association (ICMA) in the Republic of Ireland, the Chamber of Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration of CIESP/FIESP (Center of Industries of the State of São Paulo/Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo) and the Brazilian Center for Mediation and Arbitration (CBMA). It has also signed agreements for the joint promotion of the CPR 21st Century Corporate ADR Pledge in Italy and the UK, respectively with the Milan Chamber of Arbitration (CAM) and the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR). These agreements provide an international network for companies to reach out to other corporation signatories of ADR pledges.
