Kreston Reeves goes carbon neutral
The UK firm which provides accountancy, business and financial advice has successfully achieved becoming officially carbon neutral.
Kreston Reeves partnered up with environmental experts, Anthesis to calculate and assess their carbon footprint and then chose to offset their carbon footprint by creating a Kreston Reeves forest through Ecologi. They arrange for trees to be planted by world renowned tree planting experts, Eden Reforestation Projects and source Gold Standard certified carbon credits for sustainability. In order to achieve this during 2021, they planted a tree for every single client and pledge to do this every year to continue to reduce their carbon footprint.
They have also adapted working environments to assist with becoming carbon neutral such as switching to recycled and environmentally-friendly stationery, reducing paper consumption and beginning to alter offices to renewable electricity.
James Peach, Partner and Head of CSR at Kreston Reeves said;
“We’re really proud as a firm to have achieved this initial target. Our people are passionate about continuing to reduce our emissions and our impact on our environment, so we won’t be stopping here. We know there is still more work that can be done.”
Dan Firmager, Audit Senior and member of the CSR team comments;
“By using Ecologi we are ensuring we only purchase the highest quality genuine carbon credits. Each year we will continue to offset our verified carbon emissions and we also remain committed to planting a tree for each of our clients, every year.”
