Working collaboratively to promote sustainable practice across the legal sector
With AusLSA GreenThemes suggesting a focus on Travel for Quarter 2, Cornwall Stodart focussed on staff commuting and general health and started a daily steps walking competition.
Practice groups were invited to form a team of five. Daily steps were tracked using a mobile phone app (“Pacer’’) or pedometers (purchased by individuals). Cycling distances could also be included converted into steps.
The target was for the firm as a whole was to walk the Wall of China, or approximately 11 million steps, and half-way through they anticipate that they will walk the whole length of the Wall, plus some of the way back!
In a recent survey of legal staff by the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA), 90% of respondents thought that organisations should work towards the long-term welfare of the natural environment even if there are economic costs. Yet, surprisingly, approximately 50% of respondents also thought their firm did nothing at all or only a little on environmental issues.
