Sustainability Leaders: Peter Dickinson, Mitie Group Plc

In 2021 we were proud to promote Kerry Stares as our Responsible Business Partner, reflecting how critical responsible business and environmental, social and governance (or ESG) issues are for the success and sustainability of our firm and how critical they are for our clients.

Kerry works with stakeholders across our business to understand and improve our own environmental and social impact as a business. She works with our clients to understand their ESG priorities and to ensure that we are providing them with the right advice and support, both in our traditional role as advisors and as business partners. She also works with our intermediaries and wider networks to explore opportunities for thought leadership and collaboration in the complex and fast moving world of ESG.

Kerry’s conversations are so rich in insights from our clients and intermediaries - many of whom are true sustainability leaders - that we decided to record and share them as a podcast series.

We hope that you enjoy and find them useful – please share your feedback.

The first episode in the series features Peter Dickinson, General Counsel and Chief of Staff at facilities management and professional services company Mitie Group Plc. Kerry and Peter – a self-confessed ‘sustainability evangelist’ - discuss the value proposition of ESG, the evolution of Mitie’s approach and its increasing expectations of its suppliers, including law firms.

You can also find our podcasts on PodbeanApple Podcasts and Spotify.
