The UK's legal sector has launched a major new climate change initiative that should see almost a third of solicitors and law firms in England and Wales announce public carbon emissions targets.

The Law Society's Legal Sector Alliance (LSA) group, which currently boasts 215 member firms that have publicly committed to measure their carbon footprint, announced yesterday that members of the group would now move to implement carbon reduction targets.

Speaking to BusinessGreen, a spokeswoman for the Law Society said that having successfully measured their carbon footprint using the LSA's standardised protocol for measuring the carbon footprint of law firms, many of the group's members were already delivering emission reductions.
