Osborne Clarke’s Bristol office has been recognised for its sustainability efforts by being named a Going for Gold Food Champion, as part of a bid to bring lasting improvements to Bristol’s food system by making it fairer, healthier and more sustainable.
The Going for Gold initiative is part of the wider national Sustainable Cities programme that supports and celebrates communities that are making changes to their food system.
Along with other Bristol businesses, Osborne Clarke’s actions will contribute collectively to the city’s Going for Gold bid to help Bristol achieve its aspiration of being named a Gold Sustainable Food City by autumn 2020.
To qualify as a Going for Gold Food Champion, Osborne Clarke had to demonstrate the action it is taking across six key food sustainability areas including the reducing of food and plastic waste, sourcing produce for its cafe from sustainable suppliers and by providing urban growing projects for its people – which it does via several projects including its onsite allotment and bee hive.
Osborne Clarke is one of eight business to have been awarded Going for Gold status and the accreditation forms part of the firm’s ongoing commitment to sustainability. In 2022, Osborne Clarke will be relocating to a new office in Bristol designed to Halo, an innovative building designed to be one of the UK’s greenest office buildings.
