Law firm Nixon Peabody is working hard to make sure its offices get LEED-certified, with its building in San Francisco already receiving the certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. The firm is also implementing numerous changes to make their operations even greener, all the way down to choosing environmentally friendly cleaning substances.
Whether a company becomes LEED certified or not, Kaplan, who works out of the Nixon Peabody office in Boston, says she believes internal education is key to starting to turn the tide on becoming more friendly to the environment.
“Education is a big piece of this program so that people are less resistant to change,” Kaplan said, referring to changing the work environment.
