 Stikeman Elliott announced today that it is the first national Canadian law firm to be designated carbon neutral. The firm has a “GoingGreen” program that has introduced a variety of initiatives to reduce waste, increase recycling, and improve energy efficiency in its offices across the country. With those initiatives in place, the firm purchased carbon offsets – which mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions the firm produces.

The firm also has future projects in mind, such as switching more lighting to the energy-efficient type, increased use of recycled paper, and participation in additional community environmental initiatives.

Any other firms got their sighs set on getting to carbon neutral? Post a comment and let us know.
