Top-150 law firm mentioned in the UKs first Legal 500 Green Guide
November 24, 2022
The Green Guide, issued by the Legal 500, puts a spotlight on key firms in the UK which have showcased a contribution to a green transition and engagement with sustainability for its clients, as well as its own practices and initiatives.
The guide is already established across the United States, Latin America, Europe, Middle East and Northern Africa, and this year marks the first of its kind for the United Kingdom, following positive developments in ESG within the industry.
Roythornes has been at the forefront of sustainable practices since 2013, when it became a member of Investors in the Environment. The firm has also achieved the Green Star award for outstanding achievement numerous times and in 2021, won the Peterborough Telegraph Sustainable Business Awards.
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.”
Roythornes is a top 150 national law firm and has strategically located offices across the Midlands and East Anglia. The firm’s clients include major blue-chip companies, family businesses and private individuals, based nationally and internationally.
