Mogers Drewett worked closely with Bath-based climate action consultancy, Seedling, to reduce its CO2 footprint by investing in gold standard accredited renewable energy projects around the world.
As a member of the Legal Sustainability Alliance, a not-for-profit network of green law firms, Mogers Drewett has teamed up with Ecologi and has pledged to plant a tree for every newsletter sign-up it receives.
The firm has planted more than 500 trees in locations around the world so far and has significantly reduced the amount of paper it uses by emailing information rather than printing it and using new technologies such as DocuSign and Bundledocs to cut down on the use of paper. The firm is also introducing new technologies such as the Remarkable tablet to phase out the use of paper notepads.
In addition, Mogers Drewett has carried out a thorough review of its stationery and energy suppliers, switching to providers with strong green credentials.
Harry Durston, who is Mogers Drewett’s green team leader, said: “As a firm, we recognise that we have a responsibility to future generations to operate our business in a way that minimises our impact on the environment.
“So, we are extremely proud to become a certified carbon neutral business. It provides independent recognition of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and operating in a more sustainable way.”
Managing Partner Sean McDonough confirmed, “Internally there is a strong drive to take measures that will make a positive impact on the environment, we not only accept that challenge we welcome it. Clients are also acutely aware of the impact of climate change and supportive of our drive towards carbon neutrality.”
