Womble Bond Dickinson (WBD), an international legal firm, has become a member of the Energy & Environment Alliance (EEA).

The EEA is a worldwide coalition of hospitality professionals and specialists committed to facilitating the transition of the sector to a carbon-neutral economy through the formulation and advocacy of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) measures across hospitality businesses.

The complete Retail and Hospitality unit of WBD will collaborate with the EEA, whose members possess over 24,000 hotel establishments worldwide, to create the initial comprehensive, scientifically reliable benchmarks and measurements for environmentally-friendly design, development, and operation of hospitality assets, as well as to assist companies in addressing the challenges and opportunities of the ESG agenda.

WBD has consistently been at the forefront of ESG initiatives - in March, the firm was recognised as the ESG Firm of the Year at The Legal 500's Northern Powerhouse Awards. WBD is determined to attain carbon neutrality by 2030 and has adopted renewable energy practices in five of its eight UK offices, resulting in almost 80% of the electricity being generated from renewable sources.

Claire Wilkinson, Head of WBD's Retail and Hospitality team, stated that the hospitality industry is significantly impacted by ESG, a fast-growing movement affecting nearly all industries. The hospitality industry must deal with numerous issues, including changes in building codes, energy usage standards, carbon accounting, and the rising demands of customers and investors for ethical conduct.

WBD is thrilled to become an EEA member, as its profound understanding of ESG and the industry standards that establish the benchmark for excellence puts the company in a perfect position for industry-leading collaboration with other members. WBD and the EEA share similar goals and values, and they anticipate working together to create a green, sustainable environment where everyone can thrive.

Ufi Ibrahim, CEO of the EEA, stated that the primary goal of the organisation is to create a community of proactive and committed hospitality leaders with the expertise, knowledge, and determination to promote sustainable business practices across the industry. Ibrahim is thrilled that Womble Bond Dickinson has joined the EEA and will support the adoption of ESG measures among members.
