Net Zero Community Calls

We are evaluating our existing clauses using our Net Zero Dashboard and we’re looking for people to help.

By joining our community calls you can build your skills in contract review and learn more about how to apply Net Zero concepts to your own contract drafting.

Upcoming community calls are listed at the bottom of this page and will be updated on a rolling basis. 

How you do it:

Join us at our community calls at 8am on Tuesdays and 12pm on Thursdays (BST) in the TCLP Zoom Room.

No prior experience/expertise is needed, but before joining we ask that you:

  • Read our Net Zero Explainer document.
  • Check which clause we will be reviewing in the session list below.
  • If you have time, familiarise yourself with the clause on our model clauses page.

During each session we will:

  • Introduce ourselves and provide a quick overview of the session.
  • Spend 15 minutes reading the clause and populating this template with our individual comments on the clause’s Net Zero ambition levels. 
  • Have a group discussion on the points raised.
  • Come to conclusions and vote on ambition levels.
  • Participants can volunteer to help to amend the clause drafting to raise its ambition, where relevant.

It is important to remember that there won’t be an answer for every row of the template (the net zero ‘elements’), nor will there always be clear-cut answers. The same clause may have different levels of ambition for different elements and higher ambition does not necessarily mean better! A clause with modest ambition may have higher commercial appeal and bring along many corporates at the start of their journeys to net zero.

You can see the ambition rating of the clauses reviewed so far in this gallery.
