Sustainability

Our Environmental Commitment

Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is keenly aware of the impact of our everyday office operations on the environment.  Our Corporate Social Responsibility includes environmental leadership in business as well as in the communities we serve.

As a participant in the ABA-EPA Law Office Climate Challenge, we have developed a firm-wide approach to eliminate waste through the implementation of improved energy management practices, reduced consumption and collaboration with our employees across offices to be better stewards of the environment.

Our participation in the Law Office Climate Challenge, as well as our dedication to addressing the legal challenges that affect our clients through our Sustainable Development practice and our Renewable Energy practice, reflects the firm’s determination to develop and implement sustainable practices to better the world we live in.  We have taken measurable steps to improve our impact on the environment, with 62 percent of our offices LEED certified, a commitment to purchasing renewable energy credits to offset electricity used for business operations, and an annual greenhouse gas reduction of two metric tons per year through our recycling program.
