2017

"The firm could do more on recycling."
Second year trainee, London
"I'm impressed by the firm's approach to recycling and composting."
First year trainee, London
"They definitely want to reduce their electricity bills and waste but I'm not sure how far that's down to environmental concerns."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm really stresses the need to be as green-friendly as possible. However, there is very little getting away from the fact that lawyers burn through vast amounts of paper, despite policies such as printing double-sided etc."
Second year trainee, London, but on currently on secondment to Singapore.

2016

"We have the usual trimmings such as recyclable paper and sensor lights. Paper culture is still very strong though."
Second year trainee, London
"We have policies to help but there's still lots of unnecessary printing."
Second year trainee, London
"We have great policies and ideas but individual staff could be encouraged to follow through on it more. For example, we have super recycling and composting facilities but people don't always bother to use them properly."
Second year trainee, London
"Recycling is commonplace throughout the firm and food is generally responsibly sourced. Sadly, there is only so much you can do about the obscene amount of paper (though it is all shredded and recycled too)."
First year trainee, London
"There is a lot of literature on this around the print rooms and double sided printing is encouraged."
First year trainee, London

2015

"Efforts are being made in terms of the environment with lots of recycling, etc."
Second year trainee, London

First year trainee, London
"In terms of the paper I use, I must bin/recycle a tree each day but energy efficiency is taken seriously - all the lights are automatic and the firm has half a dozen different types of bin."
First year trainee, London
"The firm encourages us to use email and to work online in order to save paper."
Second year trainee, London
"There are recycling notices and bins everywhere!"
First year trainee, London
