NI Law Society launches first-ever sustainability strategy

Rowan White

The Law Society of Northern Ireland has published its first-ever sustainability strategy in a bid to promote and enhance the role of solicitors in tackling climate change.

The 11-page document was drawn up with the assistance of KPMG’s ESG team and the Law Society’s climate justice group, which was established in early 2022.

Writing in the foreword, Rowan White, president of the climate justice group, said: “I recognise that we are all busy professionals, with growing pressures, and that climate change issues may not be top of your priority list.

“This is why the Strategy is designed in a practical way so that it is relevant and accessible to all, whether you are a sole practitioner, in-house solicitor, corporate lawyer, or anyone in-between.”

The strategy “outlines how the Society aims to take steps to reduce its environmental impact and how it endeavours to support members in doing the same”, he said.
