Legalign services response to ers participating grams and ent Floor Area: 4,172m2 W+K have a nationwide Environmental Sustainability Committee which encourages awareness of environmental issues and promotes sustainable practices throughout the firm. A key focus nationally has been the reduction of paper usage. To that end, W+K have implemented a number of operational changes, including the introduction of “follow me” printing, the promotion of utilising electronic rather than hardcopy file management and the commencement of an “in house” print room solution to better monitor the utilisation of print resources. Default print settings are also set to double sided printing for all users. W+K’s annual industry publication, The Insurance Year in Review has historically been provided to clients in hardcopy format. The change to an electronic publication contributed to a 236 ream reduction in the firm’s paper consumption for 2015/16. We recycle all paper products used nationally and also have a recycling arrangement in place with the suppliers of W+K branded lever arch folders used for paper storage. All offices are located in buildings with environmental credentials. All offices are fitted with take away coffee cup recycling pods. Wotton + Kearney is committed to and extremely proud of our Pro Bono and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, Community Footprint. Through our pro bono work we assist those who are unable to obtain legal aid or afford legal representation, while the CSR initiative enables us to contribute in other ways to charitable organisations. Staff are encouraged to actively participate in the many national and office based events and initiatives organised to help grow the contribution made as a firm each year. The 2015/16 pro bono and CSR program focussed on enabling and empowering women and children in our community and further afield. W+K proudly supported Lou’s Place, Launch Housing, International Justice Mission Australia and So They Can. Support for So They Can included a number of fundraising events and culminated in staff traveling to Kenya to take part in a week long ‘working bee’. The week finished with the team participating in the Maasai Mara marathon.
