Matheson is honoured to have been awarded the Net Zero Carbon Award at the Business & Finance ESG Awards 2023 for our innovative energy tracking app – CarbonCal.
The award recognises Matheson’s commitment to place environmental sustainability and carbon neutrality at the forefront of our business through our environmental sustainability initiatives, which are delivered as a core part of our Impactful Business Programme. CarbonCal is Matheson's energy tracker app, proudly developed in-house by our Environmental Sustainability Committee and our Digital Services Group - the first app of its kind introduced by an Irish law firm. The app allows employees to calculate their carbon footprint, find out achievable ways and hints and tips for cutting carbon, and to measure their carbon footprint reduction progress over time.
Commenting, Garret Farrelly, Head of Matheson's ESG Advisory Group and Co-Chair of Matheson's Environmental Sustainability Committee, said: "Congratulations to our Environmental Sustainability Committee and our Digital Services Group, who collaborated to develop and launch the app, a first of its kind developed for an Irish professional services firm. I would also like to thank each and every member of our Committee for their passion in driving sustainability forward by generously volunteering their time and extend my gratitude to all of our colleagues across the firm for their commitment to our sustainable business practices and for going above and beyond to make sure these values are fully embedded across all levels of our business. We are excited to see what’s in store for the future as we continue to drive sustainability in our business. As a firm, our priority has been heavily focused on our responsibility in communicating the need for sustainable business practices to both our wide employee base and our own client base."
