Top 50 law firm Freeths announces B Corp accreditation

12th February 2024

Freeths is proud to announce that as part of its ongoing commitment to sustainability and its wider ESG strategy it is now a certified B Corporation (“B Corp”).

B Corp certification is awarded to businesses that demonstrate they meet B Corp’s high standards of environmental and social impact and good governance. This is measured through performance, accountability, and transparency across all areas including employee benefits, charitable work, and supply chain practices. Freeths is the largest UK law firm with B Corp Certification.

Freeths will be working with the environmental company Planet Mark to help the firm to create a net-zero plan, and to establish interim and long term Science Based (SBTi) net-zero targets.

Chris Freeston, Head of the firm’s Banking & Finance Practice, who led the B Corp application for the firm, commented: 

“I’m excited and hugely proud that Freeths has achieved B Corp certification. As a responsible business, it is testament to the hard work of our people and it highlights these important issues and embraces the values that are integral to our firm, our people, clients, and our communities.

“At Freeths, we take our commitments to people and the planet very seriously and this status demonstrates our ongoing performance in the field.”

Freeths is always eager to make a difference by helping clients on all aspects of their own ESG journey; details can be found at Environmental Social and Governance | ESG | Freeths
