Sustainability Advantage Program

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. 

Working with the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage, Coleman Greig is part of the Parramatta cluster of businesses participating in the NSW Sustainability Advantage Program. The program is designed to work with businesses to better understand sustainability and provide a clear path to improved environmental and business performance.

We are proud to be the first law firm to achieve Silver Partner status under the State Government led program.

A significant achievement was the education and lobbying of our building management to obtain $500,000 from the Green Building Fund to improve air conditioning delivery and energy consumption throughout our office building at 100 George Street, Parramatta.

Coleman Greig plans to continue our sustainability journey and become role models for sustainable business practice in the Western Sydney business community.
