Lawyers Week­ly | Which firms believe in cli­mate change and take mean­ing­ful action?

Lawyers Week­ly reached out to 35 large firms in Aus­tralia with four questions

The four ques­tions asked were: 

  1. What is your firm’s response to the find­ings from the Ethics Index that 90 per cent of Aus­tralians see an urgent eth­i­cal oblig­a­tion for busi­ness­es such as law firms to act on cli­mate change?
  2. Does your firm accept the set­tled sci­ence of cli­mate change on the nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment, as well as the man-made con­tribut­ing factors?
  3. How does your firm advo­cate for or assist in the pro­tec­tion of the nat­ur­al envi­ron­ment, if at all?
  4. Assum­ing your firm is envi­ron­men­tal­ly active, why is it impor­tant, in your firm’s opin­ion, for legal insti­tu­tions to step up and take such action?
