The Chancery Lane Project (TCLP) is a non-profit collaboration of lawyers and industry professionals re-wiring contracts to deliver on climate goals.

TCLP has launched an ambitious built environment project reflecting the huge potential for climate clauses to drive change in the planning, real estate and construction industries.

When targeted at key intervention points, these clauses will enable industry actors to achieve their net zero targets.

The project is supported by Laudes Foundation – an independent foundation working to accelerate the transition to a climate-positive and inclusive global economy.
