Terms like "carbon footprint," "climate change" and "sustainability" get a lot of use these days; overnight experts abound. Perhaps it is the result of our rich technology background. And perhaps our geography is partly responsible. But the fact is that we are now, and have been since long before it was fashionable, a leader in clean technology. We advise clients on legislative and regulatory developments, investment trends, and corporate sustainability.
As a firm, we actually practice what we preach. We are inveterate recyclers and purchasers of recycled materials, careful consumers of energy, and partners in several important programs designed to promote sustainability. These include the ABA-EPA Law Office Climate Challenge and several voluntary EPA programs, such as the GreenPower Partnership, the EnergyStar Challenge and the WasteWise program.
