Suffolk Law is going greener.
Earlier this year, Suffolk Law became the third law school in the country to participate in the American Bar Association-Environmental Protection Agency (ABA-EPA) Law Office Climate Challenge.
The pilot project, currently scheduled to run through March 2010, is designed to encourage the conservation of energy and resources as well as to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.
Thus far, Suffolk Law has recycled 22 percent of its waste stream during the 2008 fiscal year, compared to 13 percent for the same period last year.
Suffolk Law Alumni Magazine has also partnered with Royle Printing in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, to begin printing on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified recycled paper containing 30-percent post-consumer waste. Audited and certified to the FSC’s Chain of Custody Standard, Royle guarantees that its FSC-certified paper flows through a supply chain made up of companies that harvest wood legally and responsibly.
