Carey Olsen has become the first offshore law firm to enrol in ESI Monitor's Environmental Business Operations Award and Standard.
The Award is internationally benchmarked, and serves as an environmental management system that allows businesses to measure, manage, and continually improve its operational environmental credentials.
"Carey Olsen is extremely serious about managing its impact on the environment, and ESI Monitor's Environmental Business Operations Award is the ideal standard for us to work towards across our global network of offices," said Corporate Partner Annette Alexander.
"Not only will it help us to identify areas within our business that are having a negative impact on our carbon footprint, but it will also help guide us towards an alternative course of action that will benefit both us as a firm, and the environment around us for the future."
ESI Monitor was established in Guernsey to offer products and services that support businesses in their transition to more sustainable operational models. The Environmental Business Operations Award, is a five-step modular process that provides accreditation based on international benchmarks, and helps organisations to understand and meet international regulations.
The process will be applied across all of Carey Olsen's offices, including those in the Channel Islands.
"It's wonderful to see an international law firm take sustainability so seriously," said Marc Laine, Managing Director for ESI Monitor.
"Carey Olsen is now embarking on the process of expertly measuring, managing, and continually minimising its global environmental impact."
