Who We Are

Protecting our planet

At Ashurst, we understand the need to take immediate action if we are to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels and avoid the catastrophic effects of climate change.

We continue to prioritise innovating and investing in more equitable and sustainable systems that will benefit the communities we operate in. We know our clients and employees expect us to make credible commitments towards reducing our climate impact.

In 2023, Ashurst committed to setting an evidence-based net-zero carbon reduction target that aligns with the Paris Agreements 1.5 degree pathway through the SBTi.

Ashurst commits to reduce Scopes 1,2 & 3 emissions 90% by 2050 from a 2023 base year.

We are focusing on four key areas to achieve these targets:

  1. Energy transition – increasing the use of renewable energy to power our offices;
  2. Supplier engagement – developing a mature supplier engagement strategy to increase the number of our suppliers who are committed to SBTi;
  3. Conscious travel programme – reducing carbon impact of our travel arrangements, using a preferred hotels programme and increasing engagement with airlines that are developing sustainable aviation fuel; and
  4. Efficient spaces and systems – embedding intensity ratios into our offices and driving and building efficiencies in our real estate portfolio.
