"We have efforts underway to reduce our paper usage. There are recycling bins everywhere and we have recently been promoting a nil-to-landfill policy."
First year trainee, London
"The firm has made significant steps by implementing various recycling bins on all floors (and slowly removing bins from each room). We now also have bins to recycle coffee cups and reuse the material, which is another good initiative. However, I think there are still improvements that can be made to reduce the amount of paper that is used on a daily basis."
