Environmental Policy

Introduction / Director’s Statement

We are committed to reducing the impact on the environment our work causes for our own operations and those of our clients. We recognise that we cannot completely operate in a carbon-free method and are working towards becoming a fully carbon neutral company by 2030, off-setting unavoidable carbon emissions through a carbon sequestration scheme operated by the WorldlandTrust.
