Further information from AusLSA % office availability N O N L E GAL VOLUNT E E R I N G Floor Area: 26,349m2 Allens has a longstanding commitment to sustainability that is inspired and driven by a network of Footprint Committees, made up of partners and staff. Allens is the only Australian law firm to have achieved certification as carbon neutral under the Australian Government’s Carbon Neutral Program (for our Australian offices). We also maintain an AEMS-certified Environmental Management System. This year, our continued efforts to reduce our energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and paper use have included installing LED lighting in our Sydney office, rolling out new energy-efficient laptops and upgrading our video conferencing technology. Through our Footprint Committees, we also participated in Earth Hour, World Environment Day, National Plant-a-Tree Day and Ride2Work Day, and organised staff events and campaigns to promote awareness of environmental issues and encourage the adoption of environmentally responsible practices. Allens’ Community Engagement Program includes our pro bono practice, Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), sustainability work and philanthropy. Across our Program, we focus on the issues that matter, and where our people can contribute their skills and resources to make a difference; alleviating disadvantage, access to justice, reconciliation and protecting the environment. We encourage courageous leadership, enthusiastic engagement by our people and collaborative engagement with community organisations, clients and others in the legal sector. Our Program is overseen by a Community Engagement Board and managed by a dedicated team. Our pro bono practice is an integral part of Allen’s legal work. We give free legal assistance to disadvantaged individuals and to a range of NGOs to promote access to justice and protect human rights. We aim for an average of at least 50 hours pro bono work per lawyer each year. Allens funds charitable projects that make a real impact in our community and encourages staff involvement with community including through our matched funding program and volunteering. This year, Allens will be launching our fifth RAP to demonstrate our continued commitment to reconciliation. Through RAP initiatives, Allens creates employment opportunities, builds capacity through staff secondments and supports access to quality education.
