Sustainability

STOLL BERNE has a committee of attorneys, paralegals and staff that are committed to educating employees and implementing appropriate policies to advance our firm's position in regard to environment issues and practicing business in a sustainable manner.

The firm actively purchases recycled products, where possible, including paper and encourages the reuse of appropriate supplies and the recycling of other supplies. We choose to file court documents electronically when we have the option to do so, and we have implemented a "paperless" policy to reduce our paper usage.  We also encourage double-sided printing when a "paperless" option is not feasible.  Our staff break rooms are stocked with durable, reusable and biodegradable products.  Stoll Berne is "Recycle at Work" certified by the City of Portland.

We offer showering and locker facilities to our employees, as a number of our attorneys and staff members choose to bicycle or walk to and from work. Many others in the firm also use alternative transportation methods including carpooling, riding MAX and taking the bus.

Through these choices, we are proud to help reduce carbon emissions and leave a much smaller ecological footprint in our local community.
