The Language of
Do you know your IPCC from your ISSB?
Communication is a vital component of the transition to Net Zero, particularly given law’s central role in the fight to tackle the nature and climate crises.
This jargon buster series features climate professionals explaining commonly used acronyms; breaking down and demystifying the Language of Green.
What has got us talking this week:
UN climate report: Scientists release ‘survival guide’ to avert climate disaster
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), made up of the world’s leading climate scientists, set out the final part of its mammoth sixth assessment report.
In response to the findings, UN secretary general Antonio Guterres says that all countries should bring forward their net zero plans by a decade. These targets are supposed to rapidly cut the greenhouse gas emissions that warm our planet’s atmosphere.
“There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity to secure a liveable and sustainable future for all”
A brilliant start to our event, co-hosted by @CRS_Lawyers and @Impact4Climate - Developing a strategic approach to carbon offsetting for the Legal Sector. https://t.co/PUUaYr6Xl3 Read More

The LSA Carbon Calculator is a free to use online platform that members can use to measure all your emissions – across scopes 1 2 and 3. Compliant with SECR and SBTi this online tool has been designed especially for law firms. Use it as many times as you want for as many locations as you want.
Simply collect your emissions data for energy, water, waste, travel, procurement and scope 3 supply chain – and the tool does the rest. Using the latest DEFRA emissions factors the Carbon Calculator gives you an accurate picture of your annual CO2e emissions.
Set targets for reduction. Your carbon footprint is the starting point to set targets for emissions reduction. You don’t have to be an SBTi firm to be on a net zero journey – set a target to reduce year on year and start your journey today.
How close are you to Net Zero?
