Green light for alliance.

A LAW firm in Huddersfield has made a public commitment to slashing its CO2 emissions.

Ridley & Hall has agreed to adopt and pursue challenging emissions reduction targets - and encourage others in the legal sector to follow suit.

The implementation of targets has been agreed by the 20 executive members of the Legal Sector Alliance, an inclusive movement of law firms and organisations committed to working together to reduce their carbon footprint and adopt environmentally sustainable practices.

LSA members have calculated their organisation's carbon footprint according to a measuring system designed for the LSA.

Ridley & Hall is now urging other law practices across the town to join the initiative by hosting a Legal Sector Alliance Huddersfield Environment Forum from 4.30pm to 6pm on Wednesday, September 21, at the firm's offices in Queen's House, Market Street.

The free event will cover energy and cost-saving advice, case studies from Ridley & Hall's environmental initiatives, information about the benefits of collaboration and networking.
