Truth Legal WoodlandTruth Legal are making a formal commitment in their quest to become a carbon neutral organisation in the next five years by sponsoring a woodland. You might think a legal firm doesn’t have the biggest carbon footprint in the UK, but that hasn’t stopped Truth Legal making good on their pledge to monitor their carbon emissions and do everything they can to offset that with carbon positive action.

Make it Wild is a family run conservation business. Their main focus is tree planting and habitat creation to support wildlife, and they also sell a range of eco-friendly products.

Our founder Andrew Gray has taken an active role in the scheme, which has enriched his family life, and now this involvement has extended to an amazing commitment from Truth Legal.

Our individual responsibility to reducing our carbon footprint

In a statement move, Truth Legal has pledged to support the green commitments of the local area and the wider environment the world over, by sponsoring a woodland area within Bank Woods being created by Make It Wild near Pateley Bridge. Truth Legal will sponsor the planting of 1500 trees; one for every client the organisation has represented since being founded in April 2012.

This move will create a positive environmental impact, which will offset the unavoidable negative environmental impacts that we are continually monitoring and looking to reduce. Truth Legal are fully aware of our individual responsibility as a local business. From our Harrogate base we take an active role in reducing the carbon impact of businesses and the local population. We are corporate members of the ‘Zero Carbon Harrogate’ initiative where we play an important role in developing schemes which contribute to the commitment to make Harrogate a carbon neutral town by 2030.

Our move to plant trees and sponsor the Truth Legal Woodland at Bank Woods is a firm and progressive commitment to give something back to the environment, to use our clients’ funds in a resourceful, ethical and impactful way and to play our part in making Harrogate a carbon neutral area.

We are also proud to become a small shareholder in Long Lands Common, another fantastic local initiative of community owned woodland in Harrogate and Knaresborough (more info to come soon!).
