Acting responsibly and sustainably are intertwined with our character, our values and our ethos. We value meaningful connections to our many local communities and we strive to change wider society for the better.

The relationship between business and society is under pressure over issues like climate change, human rights and corporate governance. As well as managing our own environmental impact, we are helping the transition towards a more sustainable future through our sustainability practice.

Freshfields has been carbon-neutral since 2007. Since 2015 we’ve offset emissions through a 10-year investment in the Freshfields Reforestation in East Africa Programme (REAP), an innovative community forestry project in Kenya and Uganda. Our people can choose to offset their non-work carbon footprint with carbon credits from REAP.

We calculate and make publicly available our annual carbon footprint and report annually to CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project).

We also advise our clients on their own carbon reduction initiatives, as well as on corporate governance, human rights and sustainable finance. You can read our latest blog posts on sustainability issues and check out a recent Q&A on Instagram.
