LSA member Shoosmiths has a target for its operations to achieve net zero by 2025. This applies to the firm's Scopes 1 (gas and refrigerants), and Scope 2 (electricity) emissions. Shoosmiths announced this target in January 2020, i.e. before the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) launched its framework for corporate net zero target setting in October 2021.
