ALISS Key Insights
Summary Report 2017
The LFSN has released the findings on its first round of American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (ALISS) online self-assessments. ALISS allows firms to objectively track and measure their sustainability efforts; provides a detailed roadmap of additional steps firms may wish to take to reduce their environmental impact; and provides a ranking of how firms are doing on sustainability.
ALISS is a self-assessment tool that awards weighted points for various activities covering five broad categories: Internal Sustainability, External Sustainability, Stakeholder Engagement, Measuring & Reporting, and Innovation. Based on the total number of points received through the ALISS self-assessment, participating firms achieve award level recognitions.
The LFSN’s ALISS Key Insights Summary Report demonstrates how firms are reducing their environmental impact. A copy of the summary report is available for download. ALISS Participants may receive the ALISS Key Insights Detailed Report 2017.
