Through the implementation of our sustainability policy, we have created a framework for understanding and managing our impact on the environment, including by conducting green audits, to evaluate adherence to our sustainability policy. Energy saving mode is set on all photocopiers and printers, and we have installed meters on photocopiers which discourage wasteful photocopying. Our air conditioning shuts down after 6:00 pm on business days and remains switched off over the weekend. Office lights are automatically switched off after 8:00 pm on business days and operate on a timed manual system after 8:00 pm and over the weekend. As well, motion activated sensor lighting is installed in our bathrooms. We encourage our staff to reduce their use of office consumables and to recycle. Each staff member is provided with a recycling bin at their work area and we have placed large communal recycling bins throughout our offices, including in our kitchens. We encourage all our staff to adopt sustainable practices in the workplace and to share their ideas with others At Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers we have a proud and long tradition of helping and assisting others in the community. Our solicitors do voluntary work in a range of community legal centres and regularly take on pro-bono matters referred by the Public Interest Law Clearing House. We are involved in the MOSAIC Mentoring Program, which provides free face-to-face legal assistance to asylum seekers and refugees. We support The Shed at Plumpton Mount Druitt, which provides free legal advice and representation to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The firm is also involved in the Clemente Australia Program, a university education program that helps individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds get a university education. From our founding partners 118 years ago to our team today, at Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers we are guided by the simple principle of giving back to the community. So much so that our most recent staff survey found that it was one of the most attractive things about working at Carroll & O’Dea Lawyers.
