The ABA-EPA Law Office Climate Challenge and a Green Guide for Lawyers

The American Bar Association has recently partnered with the EPA to provide guidance to law firms on simple, practical steps to become better environmental and energy stewards.

In addition, a best practices handbook from the Meritas Leadership Institute was created to serve as a roadmap to help attorneys become more environmentally conscious. The guide is divided into three tiers of initiatives: Sustainability Advocate, Partner and Leader. Each tier contains initiatives that fall into the Triple Bottom Line categories of people, profit and planet.

A good friend recently told me that these resources have empowered her to approach her firm's management committee to discus how her firm might green its practice to better reflect the values of their corporate and real estate clients.

Any other lawyers out there? Your industry is gearing up!
