Willans’ Rob Nunn, Hayley Ainsworth and Hannah Wall are joined by CheltenhamZero’s climate action officer, Megan Wielding-Jones, after the firm joined the scheme to achieve net zero carbon emissions by the year 2030.
As Willans LLP solicitors prepares to celebrate 75 years in business this April 2022, the Gloucestershire law firm is using the occasion to champion a cause which will impact on the whole of its home town.
The Cheltenham-headquartered business is the first law firm in the county to join the CheltenhamZero campaign, which aims to see the town achieve net zero carbon emissions by the year 2030.
Willans already actively supports a number of county-based initiatives and charities every year – and now also has a green committee in place to help champion its own environmental practises and policies.
Hannah Wall, a lawyer in the firm’s wills, trusts and probate team and a member of its green committee, said: ‘We’re very proud to become members of CheltenhamZero alongside many other businesses, charities and community groups.’
Bridget Redmond, managing partner, added: ‘Signing the CheltenhamZero pledge is our next step towards making a difference. Cheltenham and the Gloucestershire community is in our DNA and it’s only right that we back the campaign.’
Megan Wielding-Jones, climate action officer for the CheltenhamZero partnership, welcomed Willans’ support and encouraged other businesses to step forward, too.
CheltenhamZero is ‘a cross-sector collaborative partnership enabling private sector, public sector, charities and community groups from across the borough to work together to achieve a net zero carbon Cheltenham by 2030’.
