De Brauw Green Team
Sustainability and the climate are very important to us. We focus office-wide on reducing our environmental impact as part of our corporate awareness policy.
We reduced our carbon footprint by moving into our energy-saving office building ‘The Rock’ in Amsterdam in 2009. We switched to durable energy and durable office supplies, and drastically reduced our use of paper. In 2011 we concluded that our level of CO2 emissions could not be completely reduced, which is why we decided to compensate the remaining amount via projects of the Climate Neutral Group. In the following years we will be supporting projects that stimulate people in developing countries to use sustainable energy sources and produce cleaner energy, such as biogas installations in Cambodia and energy-saving wood stoves in Kenya.
In the future we will continue to actively encourage our employees to deal with energy and waste with care, to be conscious of their own individual carbon footprint. We have come a long way, but there is always room for improvement in our contribution to make the world more sustainable.
