Our climate commitments: annual report 2020

In 2019, we made a commitment to take practical action to fight the climate emergency and biodiversity crisis. Here’s how we’ve done so far.

Since September 2019, we’ve been working hard to deliver on our climate commitments. We promised to achieve net carbon zero in 2019 and work to reduce our scope 3 emissions. We pledged to take the crisis into account when developing our new strategy. We set a goal to use the law to address the crisis. And we made commitments around empowering and encouraging our people; collaborating with others outside the firm; and regular reporting and assessments.
