Draper & Draper is Proud to be Carbon Neutral for the Second Year Running

Draper & Draper LLC has been a carbon neutral law firm since January 12, 2021.

We are committed to remaining carbon neutral. We have taken active steps to reduce our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions, and we have balanced our minimal remaining emissions by carbon offsetting.

Examples of some of the steps we have taken include:

  • reducing our energy consumption, and switching to renewable energy sources

  • auditing and reducing the environmental footprint of our facilities and equipment

  • minimizing printing and the use of paper

  • reducing waste

  • recycling where possible

  • reducing the use of plastic

  • minimizing travel, and using telephone and video conferencing wherever possible.

In 2022, Draper & Draper offset the entirety of its carbon emissions by supporting three verified carbon reduction projects: reforestation in Brazil, a hydroelectric project in Chile, and a wind power project in Uruguay. The offsets were purchased from Carbon Footprint Ltd., in Basingstoke, England.

In 2021, the firm offset its carbon emissions by supporting a reforestation project in Nicaragua verified by Foundation myclimate, a non-profit organization based in Zurich, Switzerland.
