Leading independent commercial law firm Burness Paull has become the first law firm to use Pawprint, rolling out Pawprint for Business firmwide as part of their commitment to improving their sustainability and carbon footprint.
Pawprint for Business helps businesses to unite, engage and support their employees in tackling climate change at work, at home and beyond. Employees are empowered to measure, understand and reduce their carbon footprints using the handy Pawprint app supported by the unique business insights platform. The insights and engagement platform includes employee sentiment analysis and carbon data information, enabling the business to fully understand and support employee efforts as well as shaping the corporate sustainability strategy to align employee sentiment and business goals.
Burness Paull joins the likes of investment company abrdn, the Net Zero Technology Centre, and the Peter Vardy Motor Group in becoming a Pawprint Pioneer and becomes the first law firm to sign up to take the lead in tackling climate change.
With almost 200 colleagues regularly using the app already, the firm is currently undertaking its first Kick Off Sprint Challenge, aiming to carry out activities saving an equivalent of one tonne of carbon over the two week sprint period.
Peter Lawson, Chair at Burness Paull, said: “Climate change and how to tackle it has become a key focus across every industry and more and more of our client work has an ESG element. As a firm we are committed to embedding ESG even more into our culture and DNA, and continually looking at how we can improve our environmental performance. We believe partnering with Pawprint will really help us amplify our commitment and efforts.”
“Using the Pawprint app gives everyone at the firm the opportunity to get involved and make a difference, providing a way for us all to lead a more sustainable life and reduce our carbon footprint.”
Christian Arno, founder and Pawprint CEO said; “COP26 is really focusing everyone’s attention on climate change and we are seeing businesses and organisations across all industries stepping up to find ways to reduce their emissions. Having Burness Paull as the first legal firm using Pawprint for Business is a really exciting moment for us as we believe Pawprint for Business can reduce emissions across every industry.”
