We are committed to managing our environmental impact effectively, reducing our carbon emissions from energy use and business travel. This benefits the local and wider environment, but it’s also good for business.
We are working to improve our environmental performance in a cost-effective way. We’re adapting working practices; raising awareness; investing in energy-efficient technology; and minimising waste and use of resources.
We are collaborating with other businesses and NGOs to tackle climate change on a wider scale.
We are a founding member of the Legal Sector Alliance, a movement of law firms and organisations taking action on climate change by reducing their carbon footprint and adopting environmentally sustainable practices. We are also a proud supporter of UNICEF’s Climate Positive programme.
We don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach to environmental management. Each of our offices has its own unique challenges, but we are all moving in the same direction. We set clearly-defined internal responsibilities and challenging but realistic targets. Sharing ideas and knowledge is key to achieving our objectives.
As a result of this approach we have reduced our global carbon footprint by 12 per cent since 2007/8, when we became the first carbon neutral international law firm.
