The Green Law Office Challenge
The American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Environment, Energy and Resources (SEER), in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is strongly “encouraging law offices to take specific steps to conserve energy and resources, as well as reduce emissions of greenhouse gases.”
The EPA has laid out a few specific practices law firms can undertake to radically change their over consumption of paper and energy!
- Adopt best practices for office paper management by reducing paper usage, increasing recycled content in paper purchased, or increasing recycling.
- Participate in EPA’s WasteWise program, which encourages organizations to save energy by reducing waste, and adopt best practices for office paper management.
- Participate in EPA’s Green Power Partnership program by purchasing energy from renewable sources to cover at least a portion of electricity usage.
- Participate in EPA’s ENERGY STAR program, which encourages law offices to reduce energy use by at least 10%.
