NZGIF has developed the New Zealand Climate Clause Bank, a free resource that can help businesses make small climate-friendly changes that, across the economy, can have a big impact on emissions reductions.
The award-winning New Zealand Climate Clause Bank builds on the work of The Chancery Lane Project (TCLP), a global collective of lawyers based in the UK, using contracts to help deliver climate solutions.
Developed by NZGIF in collaboration with of some of Aotearoa’s leading national and regional law firms, the New Zealand Climate Clause Bank is a suite of template clauses for contracts that can help drive better climate outcomes.
The New Zealand Climate Clause Bank won the Delivering Social and Economic Benefit category at the 2023 World Commerce and Contracting Innovation and Excellence Awards, announced in August 2023.
All businesses are encouraged to look at the New Zealand Climate Clause Bank and consider how the clauses might be able to assist in their own sustainability journey.
