Description:
Please join us to learn about exciting new developments in the world of law firm sustainability and energy efficiency, including incentives available through the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority’s Commercial Tenant Program and opportunities to participate in the Law Firm Sustainability Network’s American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (ALISS) program. John Lee of the New York City Mayor’s Office of Sustainability will kick off the program with a discussion on the role of buildings in New York City’s carbon footprint. Then, we’ll hear presentations from a New York law firm on its state-of-the-art, energy-efficient office build-out and from Beveridge & Diamond on their participation in the ALISS assessment, a program to help law firms reduce their overall environmental impact. The program will also serve as an opportunity to recognize firms that have shown themselves to be leaders in sustainability by participating in these programs. Law firms are well poised to be environmental leaders in New York City, and leading on sustainability can yield energy cost savings and other benefits in addition to benefiting our city and our planet. Join us to celebrate law firm sustainability and learn about what your law firm can do to save on energy costs and make your office space and business more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.
