Certification story

Contemporary London law firm, Wedlake Bell has achieved the Planet Mark certification. The firm is committed to corporate, social responsibility (CSR) and believe in its wider responsibilities to the community and to the environment.

It aims to have positive impact across its main CSR themes including charitable giving, community action and environment. As part of its CSR strategy, Wedlake Bell encourage community involvement among its employees and foster pro bono and community volunteering policies across the firm.

Looking to strengthen its environmental credentials, the company is working with Planet Mark to reduce its carbon emissions and share its journey with its community to inspire others. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, it will be able to increase its positive impact significantly and hopes to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Through Planet Mark, Wedlake Bell has protected an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth directly supports the Asháninka community in Central Peru.

It has also helped the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.

Future targets

To recertify next year Wedlake Bell must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
