Maynard Cooper is committed to promoting and investing in sustainability in the workplace. The firm’s sustainability policy was born out of our greater awareness of the importance of operating our business in an environmentally responsible and sustainable way; in other words, to operate in a way that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Firm Sustainability Initiatives
In developing the firm’s sustainability policy, we examined our current office management practices to identify areas where we can operate in a more sustainable way. As part of the policy, the firm’s Birmingham headquarters has adopted the following practices:
- Paper Recycling: We recycle all mixed office paper, used electronic equipment, and toner cartridges.
- Paper Use Reduction: We encourage double-sided documents whenever possible and have set the default on all of our copy machines to print double-sided copies.
- Recycled Content: We purchase office paper and other office supplies made with recycled content whenever possible.
- Energy Efficiency: We are taking steps to reduce the firm’s overall energy consumption by appropriately managing lighting systems, our information technology infrastructure, and other electronic equipment.
In recognition of its efforts, the Birmingham headquarters has been named a Law Office Climate Challenge Partner by the American Bar Association. In addition, the Birmingham office is now a participating member of the following U.S. Environmental Protection Agency programs:
