The continuing global shift towards decarbonisation means 80% of the world economy is now covered by net zero pledges. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach—organisations will need to continue to commit to targets and deliver on them; provide accurate and relevant information to the market; and be open to change as the landscape evolves.

Allens is a leading international law firm with a long and proud 200-year heritage of shaping the future for our clients, our people and the communities in which we work. Over this time, we’ve grown in scale and reach, today offering clients a global network of 40 offices in 28 locations through our global alliance with Linklaters.

Our climate change advisers span a range of key legal disciplines and provide strategic guidance to help clients safeguard their businesses. Together with our clients we’re tackling regulatory shifts and compliance challenges, and providing advice to help unlock the unique opportunities that the shift to net zero will bring.

As we work with clients on their transition to net zero, we are committed to doing our part as well. Allens has committed to a science-based emissions reduction target of 50% by FY2030. The firm is one of only 28 Australian-based organisations, and the only Australian-based law firm, to have a near-term science-based emissions reduction target approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).
