"The Environmental Sustainability Program is a great fit for our firm’s water and natural resources practice.  The sustainable business measures that we’ve undertaken, like water and energy conservation and paperless filing, are consistent with the emphasis that our clients place on long-term stewardship of land and water resources.  Demonstrating our commitment to sustainability lets us affirm our own values and better communicate them to existing and prospective clients.  It’s also another way for our attorneys to fulfill their professional obligations as citizen lawyers who are active and involved in the community.


It’s very easy to join the ESP.  We found that we were already implementing many of the measures in each of the three categories - people, planet, and profit.   The program gave us some good ideas on other steps we could take.   And as we more fully integrated our paperless operations, we significantly reduced the cost of supplies and equipment, freed up staff time, and gained usable space that had been dedicated to storing paper files. 


We heartily recommend the ESP to every law office in Colorado."
