Environmental policy

Adopted by Gärde Wesslau Advokatbyrå on 19 April 2013

Gärde Wesslau Advokatbyrå provides national and international companies and organisations with premium quality legal assistance in the field of commercial law. The firm currently comprises six offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Borås, Jönköping, Helsingborg and Malmö. All of our offices have implemented certified environmental management systems.

We shall endeavour to carry out our work, to use our premises, to purchase our materials, and to choose our suppliers in an environmentally friendly way, with the long-term objective of reducing our resource consumption and contributing to a more sustainable development. We shall also work to prevent pollution internally.

We shall, wherever possible, take environmental considerations into account in all of the decisions we take.

The following areas have been selected and assigned a special priority:

  • reducing carbon dioxide emissions by making eco-friendly choices when travelling on business and, if possible, using video conferencing equipment, rather than travelling;
  • making eco-friendly supplier choices in conjunction with purchasing;
  • reducing energy consumption in our premises;
  • reducing paper consumption.

Our environmental work shall be constructive, profitable and enjoyable. We shall achieve a sense of commitment on the part of the company’s personnel by ensuring that everyone is involved in our environmental work. All new recruits shall complete a basic environmental training course.

Our clients shall know that we are a company that cares about the environment. We shall comply with legislative and regulatory requirements on environmental issues and our internal environmental work shall be continuously evaluated and reviewed.

We shall, by means of ongoing discussions and information exchange, actively encourage our employees to take increased personal responsibility for the environment in their private lives.
