Law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) has today committed to remove carbon from their operations and activities to reach a net-zero position by 2040. Working with consultants, Go Green Experts, the firm has audited its emissions and outlined the steps it will take to reach its ambitious carbon reduction plan.
Philip Parkinson, Partner, said: “We recognise that our social responsibility extends to doing all we can to reduce our impact on the climate and protect the environment. Since commissioning the report we’ve made significant improvements but there is much work still to do. We’ll be working collaboratively with suppliers, employees, clients and stakeholders to make a difference to the communities we work and live in.”
Dominic Lavelle, Managing Director at Go Green Experts said: “I’d like to congratulate HCR for setting their ambitious Net Zero target and committing to a robust plan to reduce their carbon emissions over time. We have worked closely with HCR over the past year – the seriousness and rigour with which they are taking on this challenge will set them in good stead as they look to transform their business activities over the coming years.”
