"I haven't seen much in this area beyond the usual recycling."
First year trainee, London
"There does not appear to be a strong green initiative within the firm. I have been told the office is carbon neutral but I can't confirm this."
First year trainee, London
"The firm encourages recycling by not putting individual waste bins in each office."
First year trainee, London
"I think we are quite good as there are plenty of recycling bins."
First year trainee, London

"The firm is on the whole pretty good but I would hope that they move towards printing less and using fewer plastics."
First year trainee, London

2015

"We are sent 'Green Tips' occasionally and there are recycling points on various locations on every floor."
Second year trainee, London
"My understanding is that all bins in the office go to some form of recycling or special food waste disposal unit."
Second year trainee, London
"In terms of reducing their carbon footprint, the firm has lots of recycling bins and recycling is widely encouraged. However, I believe that consumption of paper, like at most law firms, is massive."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has lots of recycling initiatives, and attempt at reducing energy use to reduce the carbon footprint."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm has recycling bins on every floor. Wider carbon footprint regimes are available on our intranet, but could be publicised further."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has lots of recycling bins and food waste bins. Working to reduce the firm's carbon footprint in these ways is widely encouraged at the firm."
First year trainee, London

2014

"There are no individual bins in the office, but only recycling bins in the open-plans, which forces everyone to recycle."
Second year trainee, London
"It has a lot of energy saving initiatives going on with air con/computers, etc. Inevitably law firms produce a lot of paper, but there is a lot of recycling and they support the cycle to work scheme and the bicycle room and changing rooms are great and very much in use."
First year trainee, London
"The fact that we have a leading renewable energy practice helps to focus attention on this issue."
First year trainee, London
"We aren't allowed bins in our individual offices which encourages you to think about which recycling bin your waste could go in when faced with the choices! But, like any law firm, it's still a very paper-based office."
Second year trainee, Sydney

2013

"There are recycling bins everywhere."
First year trainee, London
"Plenty of recycling and compost bins around the office. I'm fairly certain that the office is designed to be energy efficient."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm takes part (globally) in several initiatives, most recently the 'Earth Hour'."
Second year trainee, London
