We believe that little steps can have a big impact. Weaving climate clauses into your contracts can extend your environmental principles through your supply chain and help to lower your scope 3 emissions. Making social value a requirement for your suppliers when building your procurement processes can achieve societal benefits beyond your own operations.
As the UK’s first B Corp law firm, we’ve implemented a supplier code of conduct, incorporating requirements around living wage and environmental objectives into our agreements. As your advisors, we can offer our practical experience of engaging with both our clients and our suppliers on environmental and social impact, as well as supporting you in developing new commissioning and contracting approaches.
