    There are a range of drivers that lead companies to make responsible business leadership a strategic priority. 


    If you think that government's commitments and actions that support business (or hold it to account) are an important signal and motivator for improving business sustainability.then you are partially right. If you think that increasing sustainable supply chain preferences from customers are rewarding firms with transparent commitments and programs then you are also right.

    A court case in the NSW Land and Environment Court has so far saved around 50,000 – 70,000 pages of paper - and it’s only day three of an eight day matter. 

     

    The Australian Legal Sector Alliance and the NSW Office of Environment & Heritage are partnering on the project that aims to build an understanding and develop resources to address the sustainability issues of the NSW litigation processes.

     

    The paperless pilot is being led by a member of the program’s Steering Group, Justice Tim Moore. AusLSA will capture and promote the learnings from the pilot in a case study to be released in August 2017.
