We are committed to reaching net zero. As part of this commitment, we work to reduce our carbon footprint year on year, driving sustainability throughout our organisation.
In 2020 we partnered with Planet Mark to measure our carbon footprint annually to ensure we are on course for our goal of net zero. In doing so we monitor operations which impact our carbon footprint ensuring sustainability extends to our staff, suppliers, travel, energy usage and waste.
Through our continued commitment to PlanetMark we are proud to have protected an area of endangered rainforest with Cool Earth and made a charitable donation to the Eden Project. To view the latest annual report from PlanetMark please click here.
Why it matters
Net Zero is a commitment by the UK government to ensure that by 2050 the amount of greenhouse gases the UK produces as a whole is less than the amount it takes out of the atmosphere.
Whilst the environmental impact of our firm is relatively small when compared to other firms and industries, we must all work together to embrace sustainability. Acting in a socially responsible manner is core to our values as a firm.
Sustainability and Net Zero practices are no longer a choice, they are essential.
Reducing our environmental impact is central to our ambitions and embedded in our ethos. We are targeting net-zero carbon by 2025 and our current footprint is significantly below the national average – we are well on our way!
Our work is broadly two-fold. We not only look at how we can reduce our own carbon footprint but also how we can support our clients through our legal advice and expertise in environmental projects and infrastructure as well as weaving sustainability and environmental considerations into their business as usual.
