A Birmingham law firm has been honoured for its dedication to sustainable practices.
Roythornes Solicitors has secured a spot in the UK’s first Legal 500 Green Guide.
The guide is already established elsewhere in the world, but this year marks the first time it has been drawn up in the UK.
Ann Barrasso, operations director and lead on environmental strategy at Roythornes, said: “We’re delighted to have been included in the first UK Green Guide.
“It’s a recognition of the work we do for our clients nationally, such as renewable energy schemes and helping farmers and landowners look after the natural environment as part of their business.
“It’s also an external acknowledgement of the tremendous amount of work we have done as a firm to reduce our impact on the environment. The whole firm has been involved in initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and resource use, as well as minimise our waste.
“We have the ambition to be one of the UK’s greenest law firms and we’re continually striving to achieve this.”
The Green Guide, issued by the Legal 500, puts a spotlight on firms that have showcased a contribution to a green transition and engagement with sustainability for its clients, as well as its own practices and initiatives.
