At Tees our overall purpose is to try and create a better future for our clients and our colleagues. Part of that is sustainability and we’re committed to doing what we can do as a business to reduce our impact on the planet.
Tees is a founding signatory of BEBA – the Brentwood Environmental Business Alliance (BEBA), which brings together local businesses across the borough to encourage more sustainable and environmentally friendly business operating practices by supporting businesses to collaborate, learn and find information about ‘going green’. Tees has signed the BEBA pledge which includes, among others, these 3 commitments:
BEBA’s central idea is local businesses committing to going carbon neutral by 2040. Tees has signed up to that and we are now very firmly on that journey. We look to work with suppliers who are aligned to the same programme of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040.
This mindset is firmly embedded at Tees. It's fundamental to how we think about where we source our goods and services, such as energy suppliers and the environmental credentials of potential suppliers across a range of our services in the next round of our contract agreements.
We are members of the Legal Sustainability Alliance (LSA). The LSA is a collaborative sustainability network for law firms and the UK legal sector.
It exists to help law firms to commit to 'net zero' by putting sustainability at the heart of their businesses. The LSA develops best practice and advises on effective approaches for law firms and encourages the sharing of ideas and information among its members, to help them play their part in tackling climate change.
Tees are members of UKSIF (UK sustainable Investment and Finance Association), their vision is “ A fair, inclusive and sustainable financial system that works for the benefit of people and planet and drives positive change”.
