Gilbert + Tobin goes carbon neutral

environment, carbon neutral

National law firm Gilbert + Tobin has moved to reduce its impact upon the environment by becoming carbon neutral across its Sydney, Melbourne and Perth offices, one year after completing its first carbon footprint assessment.

In taking this step, the firm said it worked with Pangolin Associates, a sustainability, energy and carbon management company, to identify the source and measure the level of its CO2 emissions.

In addition, the firm has purchased “international standard carbon credits” in order to offset the entirety of its emissions, it noted in a statement.

“Becoming carbon neutral reinforces our values and the importance to both society and business in caring for our environment,” G+T managing partner Danny Gilbert said.

“Our people are increasingly aware of their use of energy and other resources in their work through our monitoring and reporting.”

The majority of the firm’s offset investment will go toward two key projects that contribute to tackling climate change here and around the globe, the firm said: a biodiversity regeneration project in Western Australia and a wind energy project in India.

“As well as the environmental benefits, carbon credit generation provides employment and financial support to thousands of communities around the world,” the firm proclaimed.

G+T remains focused on identifying ways to reduce its overall environmental footprint, Mr Gilbert said.

“This makes good business sense as many of our clients are working to reduce their carbon footprint, some are already carbon neutral themselves and they rightly want to make sure that their partners and suppliers share their commitments and are taking strong action to help address climate change,” he said.
