Pinchbeck law firm Roythornes Solicitors has been rewarded for its efforts to be environmental-friendly with an industry award.
The firm, based in Enterprise Way, has received the Investors in the Environment Green Award for work done by staff to become more energy-efficient and to manage its waste disposal.
Roythornes has introduced a number of measures to earn the Green Award, the highest accreditation possible from Investors in the Environment, including an increase in the number of recycling facilities, better printing technology and the planting 1,000 bulbs outside its Pinchbeck office.
Danielle Higgins of Roythornes, who coordinated the firm’s efforts, said: “We have had a great response from within the firm and everyone has got behind the measures we have taken.
“We work with a number of agricultural businesses and so appreciate, probable more than many firms, how important it is to look after the environment in which we work and live.”
Roythornes recently demonstrated its commitment to the agricultural sector in South Holland by becoming the first law firm in the UK to sign up to a national scheme aimed at promoting careers in the food sector.
Feeding Britain’s Future, a scheme run by the Institute of Grocery and Distribution, helps young people find out more about the types of jobs available in the food sector.
Mark Dodds, marketing manager for Roythornes, said: “We have a large number of food clients and wanted to help by becoming part of the scheme.”
