By 2030, reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact of cities, including by paying special attention to air quality and municipal and other waste management

Linklaters is proud to have been awarded the Chairman’s Cup – the highest accolade – in the Large Site category, at the City of London Corporation’s Clean City Awards. Now in its 25th year, the scheme recognises efforts and commitment to adopting sustainable waste management practices. Linklaters received particular commendation for its “Ditch the Dispo” campaign, now in its fourth year, which has prevented one million sets of plastic cutlery from entering circulation since 2017, in addition to 140,000 coffee cups and lids per annum since 2018.
