Anderson Strathern

Beyond Green has recently completed an initial Net Zero carbon roadmap for Anderson Strathern, an entrepreneurial and dynamic firm which cares about its people, clients, environment, and communities. Net Zero is a key component for their strategy. They are taking an ambitious step forward by committing to meaningful carbon reductions in line with Science-Based Targets and by understanding their baseline carbon footprint, opportunities available to make reductions, and the implementation timeline required to meet targets.

This project involved engagement with Anderson Strathern’s board, professional staff and operational teams. Following their public announcement (watch the video here), interest has grown with more staff members joining their Net Zero Group. We are excited to be involved from the beginning and help Anderson Strathern along their journey and look forward to supporting them in the next stage of their journey. We hope their commitments inspire others within the legal sector, their clients, and beyond.

“Our journey with Beyond Green began in January 2020 when the world was a very different place. Nevertheless, the challenge of climate change and our commitment did not waiver. The dedication and patience of the Beyond Green team ensured we achieved our critical milestone of publishing our Net Zero commitment by September 2021 [Video of Launch Event]

Throughout the project, we recognize the value of having Beyond Green by our side with their technical expertise, pragmatic approach, balanced advice, and considered critique of our goals by always thinking of the bigger picture. We now look forward to working together to implement our Net Zero strategy.”
