Nixon Peabody Among Prominent Boston Businesses Leading Charge Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions

March 24, 2014 // // BOSTON, MA – More than six years after launching the firm’s Legally Green® initiative, Nixon Peabody remains as committed to sustainability as ever. This week, A Better City has recognized our firm in its Challenge for Sustainability Awards.

The Challenge for Sustainability works with Boston business leaders and properties to improve energy efficiency and overall sustainability; leading the efforts of the private sector towards the city of Boston’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2020. The Challenge Awards recognize businesses who achieved significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and improvements in their overall sustainability.

Over the past year, we have advanced a number of new sustainability efforts in our Boston office which earned us the Most Improved Sustainability Score. These efforts focused on reducing energy-related emissions and included replacing existing computers with ENERGY STAR laptops and desktops; performing an energy-efficiency lighting retrofit; installing lighting sub-meters on all floors, and conducting a month-long energy behavior campaign.

"We are honored to be recognized by A Better City for our commitment to sustainable business," said Carolyn Kaplan, Chief Sustainability Officer. "Not only do we understand the value of driving sustainability throughout our own organization, we seek to engage our clients in a discussion around their sustainability goals and help them to develop solutions and overcome challenges, resulting in even greater positive impact."

Since the Challenge’s debut in 2009, participants have collectively reduced greenhouse gas emissions by a staggering 18% and implemented over 1,500 sustainability actions. In 2013 participants in the Challenge for Sustainability collectively reduced CO2 emissions by 2.2%, including a reduction of over 18 million kWh. These electricity reductions saved participants over $1.4 million in electricity costs.
