Sustainability is the buzzword across the world’s boardrooms. The legal profession must be proactive to be at the forefront of global change. As companies recognise their responsibility in creating a healthier, more environmentally friendly planet, sustainability is moving from a nice-to-have to a necessity. Legal companies must view this change in demand as an opportunity – both for the planet and in becoming an attractive proposition to new and existing clients.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, MedBrief has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
