Lavan is committed to working with industry and the community to understand and minimise the firm’s impact on the environment. Part of this commitment is a desire to become a carbon neutral firm.
Lavan is a signatory of CitySwitch Green Office, which is a select group of leading organisations who acknowledge that climate change is a serious issue and greenhouse gas emissions from commercial buildings contribute to this global concern. A visible demonstration of the firm’s commitment is Lavan’s participation in Earth Hour each year.
We won the CitySwitch Green Office Award (Western Australia) in 2011 for our efforts in becoming more energy efficient.
Lavan’s environmental initiatives are a continual and evolving process and include the following:
We work with The Quadrant’s building management to ensure property related environmental initiatives are in place to reduce our carbon footprint.
Lavan complies with all relevant environmental legislation and will continue to measure its impact on the environment and set targets for ongoing improvement.
This is reviewed annually to assess achievements and to monitor progress.
Lavan is vigilant in ensuring, to the extent possible, our purchasing requirements are met by reputable Western Australian companies whose workplace practices, including their environmental focus, are well known and verifiable.
Lavan diligently sources environmentally friendly products. We will continually talk to our suppliers about their focus on sustainability and seek opportunities to work with them in ways that can integrate sustainability into our procurement processes.
We invite our suppliers to provide feedback into our supply chain practices.
We will not brief any person or organisation which has any known workplace practices which are not of the highest standard.
