Caring for the environment has once again proved fruitful for Buckles Solicitors, as the firm scooped a prestigious Green Apple Award for the first time.
At a glittering ceremony held at the Houses of Parliament, members of Buckles’ ‘Green Team’ collected their trophy in recognition of their efforts.
Organised since 1994 by the Green Organisation, an independent non-profit group, the Green Apple Awards have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
Buckles’ latest environmental achievement follows the firm’s recent success in being awarded the Investors in Environment Green Award for last four consecutive years.
Sophie Day, Buckles’ client services manager, said: “We are committed to the continual improvement of our environmental performance in relation to our services and operations.
“We are delighted to receive this Silver Award which recognises this commitment – it’s a real team effort.”
Buckles has focused on recycling, energy consumption, use of natural resources and travel as key areas in developing its environmental performance.
Sophie added: “We look forward to making continued progress in helping to protect the environment and hope that more awards like this follow in the future.”
