Launching the Lawyers Eco-Challenge
Lawyers can join the worldwide fight against global warming by participating in the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Lawyers Eco-Challenge, a program that will help practitioners change the way they do business.
MBA President David W. White Jr. last month launched the challenge, which includes multiple initiatives. The Energy and Environment Task Force will develop “Green Guidelines” for law firms to be published later this fall. The new year will bring a contest that asks lawyers to put those guidelines to use and track how much they can reduce their energy consumption. Throughout, practitioners will be asked to pledge to become more environmentally responsible.
