Green Initiatives

2019

"There are no more plastic straws or disposable paper cups. We now have free re-usable coffee cups."
Second year trainee, London
"It's an old building. We do what we can but we could do more."
First year trainee, London
"We have an environmental committee dedicated to improving the firm's carbon footprint. It runs regular initiatives with the latest being no more disposable coffee cups in the canteen."
First year trainee, London
"The firm recently gave a keep-cup to all members of staff and you can no longer receive single-use cups from the coffee shop downstairs."
First year trainee, London
"The sustainability committee really tries with this and there are global initiatives in place but it's not always easy putting things into action or getting management on board etc."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm has removed all disposable cups and makes an active effort to reduce its carbon footprint."
First year trainee, London

2018

"There is a sustainability group that tries hard in this area and there are global initiatives to record and reduce our carbon footprint."
First year trainee, London
"We have environmental awareness days, a good availability of recycling bins and we are discouraged from unnecessary paper use."
First year trainee, London

2017

"I think the firm could do better in this regard."
Second year trainee, London
"Some great steps have been taken but this is being hindered by having an old building."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is making significant efforts to recycle and encourage reduction of our carbon footprint."
First year trainee, London

2015

"We have an eco roof here at the London office which is kind of cool."
Second year trainee, London
"I understand that there are measures in place to reduce the firm's carbon footprint, but I do not know much about these."
Second year trainee, London
"I do not feel that the firm places much focus on reducing its carbon footprint."
Second year trainee, London
"While the firm do not mention their carbon footprint frequently, there are recycling bins around the London office."
First year trainee, London

2014

"The firm is fairly good in this area with room for improvement. There is recycling provision, but there is a considerable amount of printing that could be considered unnecessary. The building is old and doubtless not energy efficient. There is a cycle-to-work scheme."
Second year trainee, Brussels
"There's a green roof, and a general aim to recycle, but it would be nice to see the firm do more and push the agenda forwards as we do in other corporate social responsibility areas."
First year trainee, London
"We've got a green roof with a dog made of plants on it..."
Second year trainee, London
"The firm could do more in terms of being green but recycling, energy efficiency and the 'green roof' are all very noticeable projects."
Second year trainee, London
