Lane Powell has been recognized by the Oregon State Bar Sustainable Future Section as a “Partner in Sustainability.” The new “Partners in Sustainability Program” encourages law firms to adopt sustainable office practices and honors those firms that satisfy the Section’s criteria for sustainability. To be eligible for the Program, the law firm must adopt an office sustainability policy and implement an internal education program. The Program also has criteria related to paper management, energy and water reduction, waste and toxics reduction, transportation energy reduction and sustainable purchasing.

Lane Powell believes that protecting the environment is crucial to our employees, our clients, our communities and our economy. We strive to lead the way as a sustainable law firm. We recognize that all human activity, including the operation of a law office, has an impact on the environment and the natural world. We make daily efforts to reduce that impact.
