How To Build A Sustainable Law Firm with ESG

Fill out the form to access this webinar

A growing list of stakeholders – clients, employees, and community partners – are engaging with companies that demonstrate sustainability in their policies, everyday activities, and behaviors. It’s why an environmental, social, and governance (ESG) mindset is rapidly becoming a key focus for more businesses, like law firms. This means higher standards of sustainability, employee wellness, and leadership. 

85% of law firms report receiving Requests for Proposals (RFP) on sustainability policies or values at some point in time.

 

Knowing how to start on your ESG journey can seem overwhelming – but it doesn’t have to be. Chances are your firm may have already been working on some efforts, and you just need to better codify a plan for improving your operations.

 

On Wednesday, August 24 join a discussion about the rising trend of ESG, its relevance for law firms, and gain actionable insights about how to take steps to align your firm’s mission and values. Here’s what will be covered:

  • ESG practices and why they matter to law firms
  • How ESG impacts profitability
  • Risks of ignoring ESG best practices
  • Tips for getting started and troubleshooting 
  • Value-based ESG approach + examples
  • Technology’s role in supporting ESG  + free resources
