Beveridge & Diamond has received the American Legal Industry Sustainability Standards (ALISS) Silver certification from the Law Firm Sustainability Network (LFSN) in recognition of the measures the firm has taken to promote the environmental sustainability of its operations. The Firm is a founding member of LFSN and serves on its Leadership Council.
Daniel Krainin , a Principal in the New York office of Beveridge & Diamond who is President of LFSN and chairs the Firm’s Green Team, says, “We are proud to have achieved the ALISS Silver certification based on our environmental sustainability efforts. We believe ALISS is an invaluable tool for benchmarking our current efforts and charting additional progress.”
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. Each of these categories is further broken down into sustainability topics, such as Policy, Energy & Utilities, Volunteerism, etc. Based on the number of points they receive through the ALISS self-assessment, participating firms achieve award level recognitions.
Beveridge & Diamond Managing Principal Russ LaMotte said, “As a Firm, Beveridge & Diamond is dedicated to helping its clients solve environmental problems and achieve their environmental goals. We are proud that our own internal environmental sustainability program has now achieved recognition, and hope that our leadership role in the LFSN will help advance sustainability throughout the legal profession.”
