The Chancery Lane Project
The Chancery Lane Project (TCLP) is a collaborative effort by lawyers and other legal professionals to enable climate conscious contracting. More than 700 legal professionals from more than 180 organisations are participating, working pro bono to create practical legal solutions in the form of model laws and clauses to be wired into legal agreements.
- A world where all individuals and organisations engaged with law can use it to have a positive impact on the environment.
- A world in which legal frameworks enable and encourage businesses and communities to have a positive impact on the environment.
They facilitate collaborative drafting events to create new, practical contract clauses that deliver climate solutions, which are then published free for anyone to use in their legal work. They also run workshop events to help users assimilate the clauses into contract documents.
- A national environmental regulator who has used supplier focused clauses in their standard form supplier contracts.
- A top-tier global law firm who have included clauses related to sustainability linked loans in their banking toolkit.
- A multinational energy company who have included climate aligned clauses into their standard non disclosure agreements.
- Clause familiarisation: Download and review the clauses.
- Clause engagement: Select suitable ready to use clauses and consider new applications or configurations.
- Plan of action: Make a plan for using the clauses.
- Action: Put the clauses into contracts.
Use of the clauses can inspire lawyers everywhere to draft their own climate clauses into all types of agreements, becoming climate literate as they recognise their own role in assisting their clients to establish new norms for contracting.
