Shoosmiths supply chain engagement on the way to net zero

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. In light of this standard, Shoosmiths is reviewing its net zero intentions for all emissions so that the firm can redefine its net zero target date for scopes 1,2, and 3. This work is part of a larger project to review the firm's long-term net zero strategy.
