Environment

The firm has implemented a series of measures to limit our carbon footprint and ban single use plastic. Our challenge is to encourage and empower everyone to meaningfully engage in more ethical behavior.

We are proud to have been awarded the Good Planet Foundation’s carbon offset certificate in recognition of our green initiatives. 

In 2019, we offset 71 tons of CO2, matching the emissions of our business travel that year. Where travelling by train was an option, we took the train in 91.6% of cases. And we offset all of our corporate travel. 

Since 2020, we have been involved in reforestation projects through non-profit Reforest’Action. This focused on planting over 4,000 trees in 2020, in the vulnerable Séguié forest in Côte d’Ivoire, learn more.
