Just sustainability

TEM is supporting Clayton Utz in their carbon neutral commitment by delivering project due diligence, offset procurement, retirement and stakeholder engagement services. The firm engaged their partners and employees in the selection of offset projects allowing TEM to establish a tailored portfolio for them that delivers life-changing impacts to people and the planet.

The portfolio is constructed with carbon offsets from Australian Indigenous fire management, rainforest protection in Peru and renewable energy in India.

Clayton Utz are a founding member of the Australian Legal Sector Alliance, an industry-led association working collaboratively to promote sustainable practices across the legal sector. The firm is committed to understanding and minimising its environmental impacts. This includes incorporating sustainability into the firm’s strategic decision making with respect to premises, technology, office fittings and supplier arrangements.

“As a professional services provider, our environmental footprint is relatively small. Even so, we are committed to reducing our impact on climate change. With TEM’s support in establishing a portfolio of projects that are meaningful for our staff, we can take immediate action with our carbon neutrality while we continue to drive efficiencies within our business and procurement chain.”
