Coleman Greig is proud to be committed to managing our environmental footprint and undertaking sustainable work practices to improve the environment in the future.
As members of the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA), we are actively working with other legal firms across Australian to promote sustainable practices and reduce our environmental impact across the sector. AusLSA is modelled on a similar program across England and Wales and requires all members to commit to certain principles, guidelines and environmental reporting.

In addition, we are working with Parramatta City Council, as part of the Parramatta cluster of businesses participating in the NSW Sustainability Advantage Program.

We have proudly become the first law firm to achieve Silver Partner under the State Government led program. We have reduced our paper consumption by 22% and through a virtualised server project, reduced our number of servers from 19 down to 5 reducing our electricity consumption. We have also developed legal services related to sustainability issues including the delivery of seminars to our clients on green marketing issues. We have also educated and lobbied building management to obtain $500,000 from the Green Building Fund to improve air conditioning delivery and energy consumption.
Coleman Greig plan to continue our sustainability journey and will now work towards achieving Gold Membership and becoming role models for sustainable business practice in the Western Sydney business community.
