Aus­tralian Legal Sec­tor Alliance (AUSLSA) 2023 Annu­al Review of the State of CSR

We are proud to be asso­ci­at­ed with the Aus­tralian Legal Sec­tor Alliance (AUSLSA), which is focused on mak­ing a dif­fer­ence across the ESG spec­trum with­in the Aus­tralian legal Sec­tor. We are excit­ed to share with you the 2023 Annu­al Review of the State of CSR in Aus­tralia and New Zealand

As a found­ing mem­ber of the Aus­tralian Legal Sec­tor Alliance, an indus­try-led asso­ci­a­tion with a mis­sion to work col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly to pro­mote sus­tain­able prac­tices across the legal sec­tor, we are com­mit­ted to our ini­tia­tives, both sim­ple and com­plex. We have intro­duced sta­tionery recy­cling dri­ves, waste recy­cling, and reduc­ing pow­er usage through such ini­tia­tives as meet­ing room light­ing reduc­tions and util­i­ties such as fol­low me print to avoid unnec­es­sary printing.

We under­stand that report­ing is key to demon­strat­ing our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­abil­i­ty and cor­po­rate respon­si­bil­i­ty. Report­ing that aligns with and con­tin­u­al­ly evolves to meet the best prac­tice inter­na­tion­al mod­els and the approach­es expect­ed by our clients and competitors. 

The tenth Annu­al Review of the State of CSR in Aus­tralia and New Zealand, of 1,107 pro­fes­sion­als from across cor­po­rate and gov­ern­ment sec­tors found that assess­ing and report­ing impact and per­for­mance was the high­est sus­tain­abil­i­ty pri­or­i­ty. This sur­vey showed that eighty-nine per­cent under­stood that sus­tain­abil­i­ty report­ing helped the rep­u­ta­tion of their busi­ness and eighty-four per­cent said that it reduced risk.
