Linklaters has been awarded the Chairman’s Cup – the highest accolade – in the Large Site category, at the City of London Corporation’s Clean City Awards.
Now in its 25th year, the Clean City Awards Scheme promotes and rewards best practice in waste management by City of London businesses, recognising efforts and commitment to adopting sustainable waste management practices. This year, there were 107 entries from businesses across the City.
Linklaters received particular commendation for its “Ditch the Dispo” campaign, now in its fourth year, which has prevented one million sets of plastic cutlery from entering circulation since 2017, in addition to, 140,000 coffee cups and lids per annum since 2018.
Suzanne Roberts, Global Environment Practitioner at Linklaters, comments: “Linklaters is immensely proud of being recognised by the City of London Corporation as one of the trailblazers in implementing bold and successful waste minimisation initiatives.
