MoFo’s lawyers are recognized leaders in providing clients with strategic advice on developing and implementing sustainable business practices. And when it comes to running our own firm, we practice what we preach.
In 2010, we achieved a milestone when the ABA-EPA Challenge recognized us as Climate Challenge Leader. We maintain this status by continuing to take steps to conserve energy and resources, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants. We do so by participating in the WasteWise, GreenPower, and EnergyStar programs, as well as several other voluntary EPA programs.
We’re also a member of the Law Firm Sustainability Network, a law firm collective dedicated to establishing environmental sustainability as part of our professional and corporate responsibilities.
Three of our U.S. offices have received Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Our New York office is certified as LEED Platinum. Our San Francisco office is LEED Gold certified, and our Los Angeles office is LEED Silver certified.
We also sponsor several firmwide initiatives to promote sustainability, such as our annual Bike-to-Work Week. In its first year, lawyers and staff from 10 of our global offices biked an estimated total of 1,315 miles.
