Sustainability in the Office

Description

Are You a Sustainable Practice or a Practice that Wishes to be One?


This talk will start with the foundations of sustainability, bringing clarity to the elements (energy, water, waste, etc.) that make up environmental performance.  We’ll then explore what law firms can and are undertaking in their space design and operations to be sustainable.  As a complement to this, we’ll share what landlords are doing to support their tenants in achieving sustainability goals.  Next we’ll look at the people aspect of sustainability and provide examples of tools and communications that can be used to engage employees.  We’ll finish off with interesting sustainability initiatives and environmental challenges that we’re seeing here and in other parts of the world.

The session will wrap up with a Q&A and group discussion.
