Understanding your position in the legal supply chain

LOCATION: Clyde & Co, The St Botolph Building, 138 Houndsditch, London EC3

Understanding your position in the legal supply chain. Why should Barristers and Chambers measure and report their carbon emissions?

Legal counsel are a crucial part of the legal supply chain. As the pressure increases on private practice to measure and report across their scope 3, every supplier needs to be able to measure and report on their contribution to a firm’s footprint. This includes barristers in receipt of instructions from law firms. The Bar Council, the LSA and Clyde & Co are delighted to invite you to join us for a discussion workshop on what this means for chambers.

We will cover:

  • Why measure? Why does it matter?
  • What to measure? Understanding scope 3 and the GHG protocol
  • How to approach measurement and management of emissions and the role of the Bar Sustainability Network
  • Reducing your emissions – taking action

Speakers include:

Estelle Dehon KC – Cornerstone Barristers

Patrick Linighan – Chief Sustainability Officer, Clyde & Co

Paul O’Sullivan – Senior Global Procurement Manager, Clyde & Co

Amanda Carpenter – Director, LSA Secretariat

LSA Summer Event – A Legal Lifeline for Nature

LOCATION: Norton Rose Fulbright, 6-8pm

Nature related risks are increasing in political and commercial importance as science demonstrates the steep decline in wildlife populations – down 70% since 1970. Why does this matter to law firms and their clients?

The recent legal opinion commissioned by Pollination and Commonwealth Climate and Law Initiative found that Board Directors could potentially breach their duties by failing to consider or act on relevant nature-related risks, which could lead to personal liability.

Join us and our invited guest speakers Sharif Shivji KC who co-authored the opinion and Clare Brook CEO Blue Marine to hear what law firms should be thinking and doing about biodiversity and how best they can advise their clients.
