While there are numerous go green resources already available to the public, the Indianapolis Bar Association recognizes that attorneys and law firms face unique challenges to going green. There is no one-size-fits all approach to going green and it is the goal of the IndyBar's Go Green Committee to help attorneys and firms to develop strategies that work for them.
About the Go Green Committee
The IndyBar's Go Green committee operates as a sub-committee of the Young Lawyers Division. This committee has spearheaded several local volunteer events and is undertaking various initiatives to guide attorneys and firms to be more environmentally conscious in their daily lives. Do you want to get involved, or do you have an idea to share? Contact committee chair Ian Goodman.
The IndyBar Green Legal Initiative
To encourage Indy legal professionals to go green, the Green Legal Initiative has been developed by the Go Green Committee. This initiative encourages legal businesses, including law practices, legal departments, courts, agencies, legal support services and other members of the community to commit and engage in environmentally responsible business operations.
After committing to engage in "greener" habits, Green Legal Initiative Members will be recognized by the IndyBar at the annual Recognition Luncheon and on the IndyBar website, and will also be provided with the Green Legal logo for print and electronic use when promoting their commitment to green business practices.
The application period for the 2017 Green Legal Initiative will open midyear.
