Home Our Firm Sustainability

Actions for a sustainable future

We take active measures to improve our firm's ecological footprint, from removing disposable cutlery, glasses and cups from our kitchens and installing recycling and composting bins throughout our offices, to working with our building managers to optimise energy efficiency through zoned and timed lighting and air conditioning.
 
Our Sustainability Committee is always looking for opportunities to improve our environmental performance, challenging the firm to adopt new sustainability practices and educating staff on what we, as a firm and as individuals, can do to make a difference. The committee regularly engages staff on initiatives such as cycle-to-work challenges, hosting seminars and panel discussions on sustainability issues and giving away reusable multi-use bags for shopping. We have also joined the Ākina Foundation's fwd: programme, which is New Zealand's first social procurement marketplace, to ensure our purchasing decisions have positive social, cultural and environmental effects.

A focus on our clients

Our multi-disciplinary Climate Change group helps our clients navigate the wide range of continually evolving issues in this fast-moving area of law. We support clients directly through our regulatory, transactional and disputes advice, which focuses on climate change, sustainable finance and corporate governance.
