As one of the UK's leading full-service law firms, we believe we are in a unique position to help not just ourselves, but also our colleagues and others to create real change. We recognise the climate crisis and are actively seeking to reduce our overall carbon footprint. This is in addition to our wider goal of reducing the firm's consumption of non-sustainable and non-renewable materials, products and food, wherever possible.
We are also investing more in our pro-bono efforts to ensure we help others by providing access to our legal and other skills. For example, we actively support the Chancery Lane Project, a collaborative effort of UK lawyers to develop new contracts and draft legislation to help fight climate change, as well as being long-standing members of the Legal Sustainability Alliance on climate change. In addition, we will shortly be selecting our new "Charity Partner" this year (which will last for two years), and have decided on selecting a charity committed to protecting the Environment. We remain committed to taking on environmental projects where we believe our involvement can create tangible impact and improvement.
Our Sustainability webpages provide further information on the wider work we are doing for our clients in this area.
By carefully monitoring our own suppliers and business partners, we hope to influence others to ensure environmental commitments remain on the agenda.
Every new journey starts with a Thoughtful. Step.
