UK law firm TLT has today announced a new partnership with Carbon Intelligence, a leading advisory firm on sustainability and climate change issues and strategy, to support the development of an ambitious sustainability programme for the firm.
The collaboration is focused on supporting TLT as the firm formalises its long-term sustainability strategy, including assessment of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and establishing carbon reduction targets, among other areas. Carbon Intelligence will also undertake a full strategy and business review, providing TLT with a comprehensive analysis of risks and opportunities in terms of its sustainability strategy and approach. The resulting roadmap, focused on delivering against credible targets and engaging key stakeholders, will be a key driver for the firm on its path to becoming a net zero emissions organisation by 2025.
A leader in its field, Carbon Intelligence boasts a world-class team of 90 strategists, technologists, data scientists and engineers devoted to creating long-term change that also delivers real business value. At the heart of its proposition is a proprietary model – The 6 Dimensions Framework – that pinpoints what leading companies must master to unlock value from the transition to a zero-carbon economy.
Carbon Intelligence has helped set 43% of approved 1.5°C Science Based Targets in the UK and works extensively across the legal sector on ensuring the success of firms’ sustainability goals. It recently announced a new partnership with the Legal Sustainability Alliance, an industry-based coalition on sustainability issues of which TLT is a member, to help law firms and the legal sector more widely to transition to a net-zero carbon future.
Maria Connolly, partner and TLT’s Executive Board member responsible for sustainability, commented:
“TLT already has a proven history of working to reduce the adverse environmental impacts of its business activities and supporting clients to do the same through our industry-leading clean energy practice. But the challenges that face us all in terms of climate impact mean that’s simply not enough. We need to be bolder, and take a more strategic and scientific approach to addressing the challenges we face and to strive for true sustainability in the broader sense and in line with our values. The expertise and guidance of the team at Carbon Intelligence will be of tremendous benefit as we embark on this important journey.”
Matt Cvijan, associate director of Carbon Intelligence, added:
“Our entire purpose is to help business play its part in building a zero carbon world, and key to achieving this is forging deep partnerships with our clients on a long-term basis to build and implement leading sustainability programmes that deliver ambitious climate goals and real business value. Our partnership with TLT is focused on delivering real change and demonstrable impact, aligned with the firm’s values, strategy and commercial ambitions. We look forward to working with the TLT team to develop and deliver this programme as it seeks to play a greater role in the march toward a sustainable future for all.”
