Norton Rose Fulbright achieves Carbon Trust triple award

February 5, 2016


The only law firm in the UK to have achieved the full triple standard

Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has announced its London office has been re-certified to the Carbon Trust Standard for carbon, waste and water, in recognition of their ongoing work to reduce their impact in all of these areas.
The Carbon Trust Standard is the world’s leading independent certification of an organisation’s achievements in taking action on its environmental impact, and tackling climate change by managing and reducing greenhouse gas (CO2e) emissions, water usage and waste.

These certifications publicly recognise the efforts the firm has made to reduce their impacts on their environment.

The results (reductions measured against turnover):

CO2 – 7.2% (since 2012)
Waste – 9.2% (since 2013)
Water – 3% (since 2013)

Deirdre Walker, partner in the London office, comments:

“We are delighted to be recognised for our dedication to reducing our impact on the environment by this prestigious triple certification. We continue to be committed to integrating sustainability best practice and improving our environmental performance further.”

Norton Rose Fulbright has a commitment to minimising their impact on the environment. See more details on Norton Rose Fulbright’s sustainability page.
