Law goes green with environmental office drive

By on February 6, 2007 in Office Supplies

Law is the latest industry to make moves to turn its operations green, it has been revealed.

According to the Lawyer website, professional solicitors are taking a keener interest in the environmental impact their offices have on the wider world.

This has seen many introduce environmentally-friendly practices in an effort to reduce their carbon footprint and limit the emissions being produced as a result of their working practices.

Office furniture built from sustainable materials, automatic lighting systems that know when no one is in the room and increased recycling efforts have all been part and parcel of efforts by law firms to become more eco-conscious.

Offsetting has also become integral to the efforts of law firms to go green, with SJ Berwin reportedly planting some 15,000 trees over the last five years and Simmons pledging to cut carbon emissions by 7.5 in effort to off-set the £114,000 it needs to pay to maintain an environmental equilibrium.

Linklaters even has its own environmental policy that is designed to help the company remain carbon neutral and has confirmed that it was implemented as "a conscious decision by the firm to take renewable-supplied electricity".

At Paperstone, we offer a range of recycled office supplies to help your company do their bit for the environment.
