Environmental Initiatives Result in Highly Commended at Law Society Excellence Awards
The Law Society’s annual Excellence Awards were recently held in London, and Shropshire law firm Lanyon Bowdler were once again recognised for their commitment to the environment, when they were awarded Highly Commended in the Legal Sector Alliance Award for Excellence in Environmental Responsibility.
After collecting the certificate managing partner David Battisby said “It is great to be recognised by our profession, the competition was tough and we were pitched against firms that fall within the top 50 in the country, to come away with this certificate is quite a triumph.”
Comments from the judges included “Lanyon Bowdler's environmental strategy is an excellent model for smaller firms, demonstrating significant impact without the resource of larger organisations. The firm focuses on key issues and drives change through robust oversight, performance management and employee engagement.”
Lanyon Bowdler has shown how a practical commitment to the environment using simple initiatives, such as segregating waste and the economic use of printers, can make a significant difference. The firm reached Gold status in E4Environment’s Green Achiever Scheme earlier this year.
