Environmental Sustainability

The climate emergency requires a whole firm response. At Fieldfisher, it is imperative that we build a future that is both sustainable and fair. The transition to net zero is fundamental – not only for our people and our organisation, but for the health of our planet. As one firm, we aim to accelerate change and reduce the environmental impact of our activities across our network. We work with leading sustainability organisations that facilitate eco-innovation and empower our people to take climate action.

Sustainability Positive Action

By cementing sustainability as part of Fieldfisher's identity, we continue to evolve our programme through strategic ESG partnerships. The firm provides pro bono support to environmental and conservation organisations, such as the Orchard Project and FareShare, to build their capacity and strengthen their operations. We also team up with clients to co-create panel discussion on ESG priorities and raise the profile of collective action on climate change. Most recently, we launched our Chancery Lane Project Working Group and will use The Chancery Lane Project's Net Zero toolkit to help our lawyers amend their contracts to meet net zero goals.

In 2019, the firm launched 'Rooting for Change', our first reforestation programme. It now has an even bigger global footprint. Our mission is to invest in projects that impact not just the environment, but communities most affected by the risks of climate change. Through forestation and preservation, we will be tackling global heating and, importantly, creating livelihoods for local communities, empowering women and indigenous groups, and generating eco-education opportunities.

We are working with five organisations across the globe to deliver Rooting for ChangePitchandikulam Forest, Auroville, India; Plant for the Planet, Germany; Women's Earth Alliance, USA and Indonesia; Centre for Coastal Environmental Conservation, Bangladesh; and Cool Earth, UK and Peru. Read more about these projects here.
