Reducing our carbon footprint

We’ve implemented various initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint.

Our offices are equipped with energy-efficient technologies and we have transitioned to digital platforms to minimise paper usage. We are actively exploring ways to further decrease our environmental impact, such as supporting renewable energy sources and adopting eco-friendly office practices. 

From a social perspective, Higgs is dedicated to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion. Our ESG goals include initiatives to ensure a diverse and inclusive workplace which we regularly monitor. We provide ongoing training programmes to raise awareness and understanding among our team members and we actively seek partnerships with organisations that share our commitment to social justice.

Additionally, our outreach programmes extend beyond legal services, focusing on education, the third sector and other areas that directly impact the wellbeing of the communities we serve.

"Higgs played an important role in helping us to secure our premises, so it was lovely to have them visit and lend extra pairs of hands, even with just the day to day running of the place. We look forward to welcoming them again in the near future.”

Neil Swann, Brockswood Animal Sanctuary

"Higgs has been such an enthusiastic and supportive corporate partner and we have enjoyed every minute of being their Charity of the Year"

Sara Ward, CEO, Black Country Women’s Aid

Ethical practices

Governance forms the backbone of our ethical practices. We uphold the highest standards of integrity and transparency in our operations. Our governance goals include regular audits and assessments to ensure compliance with industry regulations and ethical guidelines. By maintaining a robust governance framework, we aim to build trust with our clients and business partners, reinforcing the foundation of our long-term relationships.

The firm’s ESG goals are not just aspirations; they are actionable steps towards a sustainable and socially responsible future. By integrating these initiatives into our core values, we believe we can create long-term relationships that are not only legally sound but also environmentally and socially conscious.  

Our aspiration is to ensure that every relationship is built on a foundation of ethical practices and a commitment to a better world.
