Dominic and Bria's Clause

Further Assurances

This clause requires the parties to consider the emissions associated with the performance of the agreement. It can be used in any commercial agreement. 

Jurisdiction: Aotearoa New Zealand

What this clause does

By considering the emissions associated with an action under an agreement, parties are more likely to take steps to mitigate those emissions. The performance of a contract can create emissions in many ways. Each contract will have its own particular emissions profile.

This clause adapts part of [Nico's Clause] 'Coolerplate' Clauses (Climate Aligned Boilerplate) for use in Aotearoa New Zealand. 


1. Further climate assurance 

Each party agrees to take reasonable steps to minimise the [greenhouse gas emissions*] of its activities when performing its obligations under this document.

* [Drafting note: If this clause is being used in a document that contains other TCLP clauses, this could be replaced with the defined term ‘Greenhouse Gas Emissions’.]
