Our commitment to the environment
DAC Beachcroft has an Environment policy which can be found on our website. We are a member of the Legal Sector Alliance, to which we annually submit our data on carbon emissions for reporting and benchmarking. Our figures show that we have reduced our Carbon Footprint by 33% over the past 3 years, largely because of the roll-out of Agile Working in more energy-efficient buildings across our Locations. In addition, we have reduced wasted energy through IT policies such as the use of Duplex printing and ‘sleep modes’ on all equipment.
Our Bristol office introduced initiatives such as removing single-use cardboard coffee cups, organising separate food-waste disposal, removing desk-side waste bins, running a car-share scheme, and encouraging staff to cycle to work through the provision of showers and cycle storage facilities. The Bristol office won a TravelWest Business Award in 2017 for Green travel habits. Similar initiatives are being rolled out across our other Locations with our London Green Team volunteers working to minimise our impact on the environment in our new global headquarters in the Walbrook Building.
