Lawyers Climate Week: Law Firm Action Tuesday, September 24, 2019

 

Founded in August of 2011, the Law Firm Sustainability Network (“LFSN”) consists of law firms united and committed to promoting the benefits of environmental sustainability and corporate responsibility within their firms and throughout the legal industry.

Dedicated to law firm sustainability, LFSN has sought to establish environmental sustainability as a key component of professional and corporate responsibility.  Committed to improvement, the LFSN developed the American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (“ALISS”), an online self-assessment for firms to measure key aspects of sustainability, to identify specific areas of strength and opportunities for improvement as well as recognition.   Devoted to knowledge-sharing, the LFSN fosters sharing and collaboration through webinars, roundtables and resources, including on demand learning and case studies that explore a wide-range of sustainability topics.

The LFSN is recognized as the premiere collaborative sustainability organization for U.S. law firms and law offices.  Membership is open to law firms and in-house legal departments.  Many LSFN members are AM Law 100, boutique or regional firms.  LFSN carries diverse representation from attorneys to management to professional and administrative staff sharing perspectives.  The LFSN is in part, funded by the generosity of its Leadership Council, including law firms Beveridge & Diamond PC, Nixon Peabody LLP, and Seyfarth Shaw LLP.  Visit https://lfsnetwork.org or contact Gayatri Joshi, Executive Director of the LFSN, gjoshi@ecoanalyze.com.
