Environmental Sustainability at KSLN

For many years, KSLN has been committed to environmentally responsible operations and practices. The pursuit of excellence in all that we do – a core value upon which our firm was built – is manifest in our daily efforts to conserve environmental resources and reduce our ecological footprint. Likewise, the same values that lead us to be conscientious managers of our clients’ resources drive our commitment to environmental stewardship in our offices. To that end, our firm has taken concrete steps to reduce, reuse and recycle in the following ways:

 

  • Electronic filing with courts
  • Electronic routing of faxes and scans
  • Electronic transmission of accounting reports
  • Recycle paper, cardboard, aluminum, plastic, glass
  • Recycle toner and printer cartridges
  • When upgrading our electronics and appliances, KSLN purchases ENERGY STAR® qualified products to reduce power consumption
  • We installed 100% energy-efficient lighting in our firm’s headquarters
  • Committed to a paperless environment
