We think globally by acting locally
At Fieldfisher, we believe a pro-active approach to tackling environmental issues is critical. The science on global warming is settled and climate change is happening. Under the Paris Climate Agreement, signatories agreed to keep global warming below 2 degrees. Therefore, as a firm, we aspire to contribute towards a sustainable future by reducing the impact of our activities across our network of offices.
Our Environmental Policy
Our environmental policy has four key objectives
- To increase employee awareness of environmental issues
- To minimise our carbon footprint
- To reduce waste and increase our use of recyclable materials in our offices
- To support sustainable development through pro-bono initiatives and fundraising.
Our development in this area is overseen by our Environment Team and growing network of Green Champions, who together aim to drive change and encourage participation across the business by running green initiatives and campaigns.
What we do in our offices
Our head office in London has a Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) rating of 'Excellent'. BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable building design, construction and operation and has become one of the most comprehensive and widely recognised measures of a building's environmental performance.
All of the electricity used in our head office is also generated via renewable energy sources and we have taken various steps to increase our energy efficiencies.
Legal Sustainability Alliance
We are also members of Legal Sustainability Alliance (LSA). The LSA is an inclusive movement of law firms committed to taking action to improve the environmental suitability of their businesses.
