London and South East financial firm announces carbon neutrality

An accountancy, business and financial advice firm has marked a major environmental benchmark, becoming officially carbon neutral.

Kreston Reeves, with offices across London, Kent and Sussex, set a target to achieve carbon neutrality by the end of 2021 and have completed all the necessary work to meet this target.

The firm partnered with global sustainability experts Anthesis to review and calculate the firm’s carbon emissions, and with Ecologi, a certified B Corp that helps businesses offset carbon emissions.

In 2021, Kreston Reeves offset a total of 1,616t of carbon emissions by way of purchasing carbon credits. In addition, to mark the firm’s 200th anniversary, Kreston Reeves planted 16,944 trees, one for each of its clients. Kreston Reeves has made a commitment to remain carbon neutral in every year going forward.

James Peach, partner and head of CSR at Kreston Reeves said: “We are 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.

“These are great first steps towards achieving a sustainable future and we’re keen to continue to find ways to further reduce our carbon footprint.”

Dan Firmager, audit senior and member of the CSR team adds: “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.”
