Conyers Launches ‘Green’ Partnership with Non-profit Green VI

Firm takes first steps towards a more sustainable BVI through in-house and community programmes.

Conyers kicked off its strategic partnership with environmental non-profit Green VI with a series of interactive educational sessions on how to promote the wellbeing of the BVI environment through sustainability.

The firm simultaneously launched its comprehensive office recycling programme, which alongside existing composting efforts will help reduce its carbon footprint.

Having taken Green VI’s ‘Green Pledge’, Conyers is now on the way to achieving the highest level ‘Green Leader’ accreditation through a certification programme developed with the Ministry of Natural Resources.

Richard Evans, a partner in the BVI office and head of the firm’s Sustainability Committee, appreciated the insights, dedication and enthusiasm that Green VI brought to the inaugural session.

“I was delighted to attend the first of a series of in-house seminars hosted by Conyers and given by Green VI,” Evans said. “This represents the start of our strategic partnership with this leading BVI NGO to improve further our firm’s sustainably efforts and to educate all of our team that small steps in the office and at home can have a big impact on the beautiful but fragile BVI environment.”

Other benefits the partnership is expected to bring include:

  • Using office cleaning products less harmful to the environment
  • Conducting outreach programmes in the community, including working alongside the education sector to encourage further sustainability
  • Field trips in small groups to learn first-hand about plastic recycling in the BVI
  • Obtaining official accreditation for the office’s green efforts

The initiative aligns with the BVI office’s goal of making sustainability an integral part of the Conyers culture.

Currently, Conyers’ BVI practice is one of the only businesses in the islands with an office composting scheme.
