Legal giant Slaughter and May has confirmed that a goal to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030 has been approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) as aligned to the 1.5C ambition of the Paris Agreement.
During the last 10 years, the firm has reduced the absolute carbon emissions associated with its energy use by 63%
Slaughter and May unveiled the commitment, which covers Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, last year. The target commits to halving emissions by 2030 against a 2018 baseline.
The targets have now been approved by the SBTi as aligned to the highest ambition of the Paris Agreement and would also put the company on a trajectory to deliver net-zero emissions by 2042.
