Clayton Utz and the Environment
Our aim is to minimise our use of resources, maximise re-use and recycle where possible.
We have implemented environmental initiatives that assist us to understand our impacts and incorporate sustainability into our decision-making. We are proud to be a founding member of the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA), an industry-led association working collaboratively to promote sustainable practices across the legal sector.
Our environmental policy includes understanding our impacts, measuring these and developing systems and processes to minimise these impacts as much as possible. The Firm has adopted initiatives aimed at reducing the environmental impact of our operations and raising awareness of sustainability issues. In FY16 we reduced electricity usage by 12.5% and we have offset our FY16 carbon emissions, as measured in line with the Federal Government's National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS) program, through the purchase of carbon credits.
We have now implemented the certified AusLSA Environmental Management System (AEMS). This allows us to understand and manage our environmental risks, and make remedial plans to minimise our impacts.
