Firms Using Sustainability for Long-Term Success - NR&E | Spring 2011
Leading law firms and some smaller firms, too, are using values-driven management focused on sustainability—the so-called triple bottom line of social, economic, and environmental responsibility—to build and sustain their practices over the long term. They are finding ways to use this concept to align their businesses with a growing number of clients and potential clients who are also embracing it. Fourteen firms are using the American Bar Association Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources’ Sustainability Framework for Law Organizations, a model policy and implementation tool supported by the influential CERES coalition, to summarize and communicate their sustainability approach, often in response to client requests.
