Freeths, is delighted to announce its recent accreditation as a certified B Corporation ("B Corp"), marking a significant step in its ongoing commitment to sustainability and broader Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) strategies.

He expressed his excitement, stating, "I’m excited and hugely proud that Freeths has achieved B Corp certification. As a responsible business, it is testament to the hard work of our people and it highlights these important issues and embraces the values that are integral to our firm, our people, clients, and our communities."

Freeths is not merely stopping at certification; the firm has partnered with environmental company Planet Mark to develop a net-zero plan.
