Sustainability

Our corporate social responsibility

It's our responsibility.

We strive to provide our clients with the highest quality of service and standards. At the same time, corporate social responsibility (CSR) underpins how we manage our business in a way that enhances the positive and minimises the negative economic, social and environmental impacts of our activities and services.

We aim to combine the provision of high-quality legal service to our clients with a rewarding working environment and an awareness of the wider community. CSR requires balancing the interests of our stakeholders who include our clients, our employees, the local community and relevant regulatory bodies. Responsibility for CSR performance rests with all our partners and staff. Our stakeholders and staff are fundamental to the success of CSR through the collaborative development of cost effective solutions that enable us to make a positive social impact.

World land trust paper carbon balancing programme

Carbon offsetting is a process whereby an individual or company takes action to prevent the release of emissions elsewhere, or secures the absorption of atmospheric carbon dioxide as part of a wider approach to measure, reduce and then offset emissions through impactful conservation projects.

Carbon balanced offsetting focuses on taking a balanced approach to your emissions by following a three-step process to measure and reduce, before offsetting residual emissions. All carbon balanced projects are carefully designed according to robust standards that ensure offsets are delivered at a portfolio of sites where they are measurable, verifiable and properly monitored and can achieve high-quality REDD+ outcomes
