Sustainability and Us
The Green Accountants
The Green Accountants is run by a small team with big climate ambitions. Our vision focuses on inspiring and enabling our clients to go greener. From the way we run our business day to day, to the way we work and help our clients, we aim to ensure sustainability is at the heart of all we do.
We have made a number of changes over the years, to demonstrate our commitment to all stakeholders, customers and businesses we work with, to bettering the world of business and the climate crisis.
Following the success of our accounting advice and services, which set out to be the helping hand to lift our clients out of the sea of hard-to-understand financial jargon and let them get back to doing whatever it is they do best, while we do the same, we realised that the ultimate challenge facing businesses today, is climate change.
Though we initially found that clients and even our team were reluctant to video call, since the pandemic began, online meetings have become the new normal. Following this, the new normal is expanding and we now think that having sustainability at the heart of every company is not only essential for the climate, but also essential for your business.
So, alongside doing your accounts smoothly, efficiently, and to the highest standard you can hope for, we are working to do more for you and your business.
From planning your first sustainability steps or helping you to be proactive in the face of legislation, to helping make the kind of investments which bring huge carbon savings, we are there every step of the way and you can be proud to say that your accountants,are The Green Accountants.
What We Are Doing?
We have a good understanding of environmental legislation. We fully comply with all areas and will remain aware of our duties
Climate Positive workforce
We partner with PlayIt Green to offer a Climate Postive Workforce. Meaning we invest in natural offsetting prgrames to snure both business and perosnal emisisons are offset. This collaboration has massive benefits beyond accounting for carbon emissions as we work to reduce them, as the the project increases social value in the sites and aprt of our investment also goes towards incredible charity Sea Shepherd to ensure we have a broad range of benefit.
The building is highly insulated. The windows have heat saving solar film which helps retain heat if the air outside is cooler than the office, and reflects sunshine away from the office on hot days.
We refurbish and purchase recycled equipment where possible. All of our desks are purchased second hand avoiding landfill and manufacture of new desks.
Meetings are held online or at clients’ premises.

Part of the Big Hand Group
Here are what people are saying about us…
They’ve helped us in various areas from simply setting up a subsidiary company, through to preparing our company structure for raising capital.
It’s like having an in-house FD without the expensive wages!
Since working with ‘Big Hand,’ our turnover has increased and continued to do so. They are an A-Class team, and we are always able to get hold of them. Even a few nightly calls for those vital business decisions.
Without doubt the best accountants we have used and would highly recommend.
