Green Practices






We’ve been ahead of the curve in green consciousness for some time now, having taken measures such as the installation of sensor lighting and the imposition of a strict recycling program. But due to growing environmental concerns, we have recently stepped up our efforts to do everything possible to push the green agenda, including the introduction of an on-line portal to facilitate the digital delivery and permanent storage of tax returns and financial statements. Our clients, with password access to their personal portal, will never need paper copies again.

Green Fee Reduction

We believe the most important aspect of greening Breard is to examine our place in the supply chain. We’re looking at all of our vendors to make certain they are green or intend to be soon. We are also encouraging our clients to become green by offering a 3% reduction in our fees to all eco-friendly firms.
