Green Guidelines

The Massachusetts Bar Association has created GREEN GUIDELINES, OFFICE MANAGEMENT and GREEN GUIDELINES, LANDSCAPE MANAGEMENT to assist lawyers to:

Recycle: environment consciousA ssess current environmental practices.
C ommit to adopting more sustainable practices.
T read more lightly on the Earth.

Sustainable practices are defined as using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanently damaged.

The MBA Energy and Environment Task Force recognizes that each lawyer's ability to implement these MBA GREEN GUIDELINES may depend on a number of factors. Some may have a greater ability to implement these guidelines than others and some may be able to institute measures that go far beyond the scope of the MBA GREEN GUIDELINES. We encourage everyone to use their BEST EFFORTS to implement the MBA GREEN GUIDELINES to the extent reasonably feasible and make them your own. Inspiring and educating yourself and others will ensure environmentally sustainable practices. Thank you for your participation. Together, we will make a difference.
