Legal Sector Alliance
The Legal Sector Alliance is an inclusive movement of law firms and organisations committed to working collaboratively to take action on climate change by reducing their carbon footprint and adopting environmentally sustainable practices.
" Climate change is the greatest challenge facing mankind today and we only have a very small window of opportunity to act. The continued growth of the Legal Sector Alliance demonstrates that law firms recognise the urgency of the situation and are committed to taking a leadership position in this area. By collaborating to share best-practices in sustainable business, the legal sector can make a positive contribution to combating climate change."
