Floor Area: 10,968m2 Maddocks seeks to lead by example through the adoption and implementation of environmentally sustainable practices in all that we do. During FY17-18, we continued our journey to help our people keep sustainability front of mind - both in the workplace and at home. In order to progress as a sustainable organisation, we look for opportunities to: • Optimise the use of natural resources in our operations to reduce carbon emissions through efficiency, reuse and waste reduction • Maximise sustainable practices in the procurement of our supplies and services • Encourage sustainable thinking in our people, clients and communities. Our approach is also governed by an Environmental Policy and Environmental Management System (EMS), which was developed in 2010 and formally adopted in 2011. The precautionary principle is applied to the management of greenhouse gas emissions. Staff are encouraged to limit travel wherever possible so as to reduce carbon emissions. The firm has embarked on a ‘Paper Lite’ project with the aim of reducing paper consumption. We have reduced our electricity consumption across the firm. We take seriously our role as a member of the communities in which we operate. There is a demand for the skills we have as an organisation by those who are usually unable to access the services of a commercial law firm. We aim to create social and economic benefits for these communities through pro bono work, the Maddocks Foundation, our support for various causes and by the volunteering of our employees’ time and skills. We have a particular focus for these programs on the areas of homelessness, mental health, welfare, human rights and education / literacy. In FY17-18 the Maddocks Foundation made grants totalling $145,000 to various charities that support the disadvantaged. Maddocks also runs a small grants program which provides grants up to $2,000 to support initiatives of organisations undertaking socially responsible work in which staff of Maddocks are personally Involved. The firm also has the Maddocks Board Scholarship which is awarded annually to a Maddocks employee to pursue a community or charity interest.
