The ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources (SEER) and LFSN have partnered to help drive industry-wide change by raising awareness of LFSN tools and resources created to help firms reduce their environmental impact. This partnership supports ABA House of Delegates Resolution 111, which urges federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal governments, and the private sector, to recognize their obligation to address climate change.
Over the next few months, governors and mayors addressing the COVID-19 pandemic with stay-at-home restrictions may begin to lift them as they see their states and cities stabilize. At that point, businesses may have the choice of allowing employees back into physical office spaces. In this session we discuss the challenges and considerations of having employees in the office and what options to consider to do so both safely and sustainably.
The LFSN will be holding a special speaker sustainability speaker series with The Weeks Lerman Group, a national distributor and supplier of office products. This series was created to help firms understand changes that they can make in their office spaces to make them more sustainable as well as what to look for in the products they purchase. We start with TWLG’s own sustainability program and their partnership recycling programs (3/4) to Coffee & Pantry (6/3), Green Promotional Products (8/4) and Office Products & Furniture (12/2).
