Four Eco-Challenge participants honored for their strides in greening their practices
The work of the Massachusetts Bar Association Energy and Environment Task Force in developing the Green Guidelines and launching the Lawyers Eco-Challenge has been well received by the Massachusetts legal community, with nearly 60 firms and solo practitioners pledging to incorporate more earth-friendly practices into their offices.
On May 14, the Massachusetts Bar Association and its Lawyers Eco-Challenge partner, the Conservation Law Foundation, honored four of those law firms for exemplary leadership in greening the practice of law. The honors took place at the closing reception following the House of Delegates meeting at the Salem Waterfront Hotel.
“Now, more than ever, it is necessary for lawyers to become sustainability leaders. We hope the efforts of our Eco-Challenge pledge partners continue to inspire changes throughout the legal community and the business world at large,” said MBA President David W. White Jr. as he welcomed the guests of honor at the reception.
