The Witt Law Firm & Sustainability

T
he Witt Law Firm is committed to a sustainable future for our planet and has taken steps to fight global climate change.

 

  • The firm follows a paperless business model that consumes only a tiny fraction of the paper used by a traditional law office. This not only reduces waste, but it is also improves employee productivity by making all documents conveniently available in digital format. The firm uses only recycled paper, most of which is made from 100% post-consumer materials and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.
  • Over 95% of the firm’s electricity comes from solar and wind power.
  • The firm recently converted its car to run on bio-fuel.
  • The firm and its employees actively recycle, both at work and at home.
  • Firm employees are encouraged to telecommute and work remotely.

The above steps drastically reduce the firm’s overall carbon footprint. The emissions that cannot be eliminated are then offset by the purchase of renewable energy credits. The firm hopes that others will follow its example and help preserve and protect our children’s future.
