Willans CheltZero

Law firm Willans has become the first in its sector to join the climate-change campaign CheltenhamZero.

Celebrating 75 years in business this April, Willans is committed to supporting the town’s shift to net zero emissions by the year 2030.

The firm already has a green committee in place to help champion its environmental practises and policies.

Hannah Wall, a lawyer in Willans’ wills, trusts & probate team, and an active member of its green committee said: “We’re very proud to become members of CheltenhamZero alongside many other businesses, charities and community groups.

“As a committee, we’re looking forward to making plans and starting projects that will have a significant impact on Cheltenham’s carbon emissions.”

Managing partner Bridget Redmond said: “As a firm, we acknowledge the severity of the climate emergency and while we’ve made many eco-friendly improvements already, 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, said: “We’re working hard to engage as many businesses as possible on our quest to have Cheltenham reach Net Zero Carbon by 2030, so we’re especially pleased to welcome Willans LLP, a company with an established reputation for protecting the environment, into the CheltenhamZero fold.”
