LaborLawCenter™ is Committed to an Eco-Friendly Workplace
the LaborLawCenter™, we are committed to maintaining and operating an
eco-friendly workplace. We realize that when we conduct business in
an environmentally responsible manner, we contribute to preserving the
environment for future generations. With our daily workflow and processes,
we routinely evaluate potential areas of inefficiency and waste, so
we can make continual strides towards environmental responsibility.
We are in the business of making sure that other businesses achieve their
compliance requirements. As with many other businesses, our daily operations
require a substantial volume of paper, printing, and shipping resources
so that we can deliver what our customers need in a timely and expedited
manner. For this reason, we believe that operating an eco-friendly workplace
is a top priority – one that we strongly encourage both internally,
as well as externally with our customers, partners, and suppliers.
Some of the methods we use to limit energy and resource consumption include:
- Utilizing eco-friendly paper, ink cartridges, light bulbs, and other materials throughout the office so we can conserve resources and minimize waste
- Developing customized compliance products and services that are digital-based, and do not require the use of printing, laminating, or shipping resources
- Working collectively as a team so that all employees take an active role in reducing, recycling, and re-using workplace supplies and materials whenever possible
- Informing our customers, partners, and suppliers of our commitment to eco-friendly standards, while encourage them to take an active involvement in green conservation methods
We realize that every effort counts when it comes to creating a more
energy-efficient workplace. Internally, we work as a team to encourage
and instill a culture of energy-efficient practices and resource conservation.
Whether it means reminding a peer to shut down his or her computer,
or volunteering to route recyclables to the closest recycling center
– we all do our part to maintain an environmentally-responsible
Does Your Company Work Green?
We are also committed to helping our customers, partners, and suppliers
