“For years Kilpatrick Stockton has been committed to creating an environmentally friendly workplace. Many of our departments such as IT and our Resource Center have adopted initiatives to mitigate the firm’s environmental impact,” said Rick Horder, Environmental Partner, who is spearheading the firm’s Green Initiative. “This initiative brings together all of the firm’s sustainability efforts under one umbrella. It is an opportunity to encourage all firm employees to participate in our commitment to environmental sustainability.”
Throughout the year, a committee of Kilpatrick Stockton professionals representing all departments and offices has been studying the firm’s sustainability efforts in order to make a detailed recommendation for enhancing the firm’s commitment to the environment. In culmination of these efforts, each of the firm’s offices will be holding internal events the week of October 13 to officially launch the program. Throughout the coming months the firm will continue to hold events and adopt initiatives to educate and engage its employees to be environmentally conscientious both at work and at home.
