We are a committed member of the Legal Sustainability Alliance which has been developed to support the move towards a low carbon economy and to run sustainable and efficient businesses and have joined the UK Green Building Council, which seeks to improve the sustainability of the built environment. In support of those aims, we have also signed the Greener Litigation Pledge, an initiative to reduce the environmental impact of dispute resolution, and provide assistance to the Chancery Lane Project, which seeks to encourage and promote the inclusion of sustainability clauses within contracts and endeavours to raise awareness about the role of the law in the fight against climate change. 

At Fenwick Elliott we understand the new green landscape and recognise that sustainability is about striking a balance, understanding new legislation, and applying the right standards and benchmarking. We have a comprehensive understanding of global sustainability legislation and the challenges it will present to your project – large or small. We are also familiar with the new technologies that can support the changes that need to be made which means that we can not only save you time and money but protect your reputation by ensuring your schemes fully comply with ever-evolving environmental requirements.
