Net Zero Pledge – Bright Solicitors
In accordance with the UK Government’s Sustainable Development Strategy, Bright Solicitors continues to implement sustainable practices throughout its business activities. A core value of the firm is to create and maintain a sustainable model which still allows for the growth and development of the business.
Our commitment is now set out in our pledge to achieve Net Zero by 2050 and to reduce our total carbon footprint by at least 50% by 2030. In order to achieve this, we have created a Sustainability Charter which sets out targets for us to achieve.
We have recently taken part in the Make it Net Zero Program, which has helped us analyse our carbon footprint. Also, we have now been certified as having provided a validated carbon footprint according to the Future Net Zero Standard accreditation.
We will use this carbon footprint report as a benchmark, to reduce our emissions year by year. Key targets include reducing our paper usage by 50% within the next two years. We will also look to remove any existing residual emissions through verified offsetting schemes by 2050. Please refer back to our Sustainability Charter to see a full list of targets.
Looking into the future, we look forward to creating more sustainable methods of operating. The firm has created this policy in order to improve our sustainability while maintaining growth and development.
