Law Firm Sustainability Network Launches ALISS Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool

April 22, 2015
Press Release

The Law Firm Sustainability Network (LFSN) has launched the American Legal Industry Sustainability Standard (ALISS), an online self-assessment tool that measures law firms’ environmental sustainability.  ALISS allows law offices to take stock of their efforts to promote energy efficiency, conservation of energy and resources, recycling, and related measures, and to identify opportunities to enhance their sustainability programs and practices.

ALISS is currently in the pilot phase of its launch, with 12 law firms now in the process of completing their sustainability self-assessments. Those participating in the ALISS pilot include the LFSN Leadership Council firms Alston & Bird; Beveridge & Diamond; Blank Rome; Nixon Peabody; Seyfarth Shaw; and Wendel Rosen, as well as LFSN law firm members Kirkland & Ellis; Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox; Morrison Foerster; Paul Hastings; Pillsbury; and Robins Kaplan.  Following completion of the pilot in April, the LFSN will make ALISS available to all of its members in May.
