30 Oct - 4 Nov 2022
Room 229 B, Level 2
Tuesday 1 November (1615 - 1730)
Young Lawyers' Committee
SustainabilityFocusYoungLawyersClients and prospective clients want to see law firms “walk the walk and talk the talk”. They are more interested than ever in a business’s commitment to the environment, its people and the running of its business in an ethical and sustainable manner. Although law firms might be part of the services industry with a lighter environmental footprint than other industries, a law firm's impact on the environment goes beyond its energy usage and paper waste. It extends to the clients it works with, the example it sets to its employees and especially young lawyers and the impact of its work within communities and industries. How can law firms and businesses not just do what is "best in the world" but also "best for the world"?
SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
