Adopting sustainable business practices in the legal sector: risk or opportunity?

Overview

The rapidly evolving regulatory landscape, changing customer needs, behaviours, expectations, and the ever-increasing cost of doing business are pushing organisations to put sustainable procurement at the top of their strategic agenda. Organisations are becoming more environmentally conscious and adopting sustainable business practices to combat climate change. The trend is clear: consumers prefer organisations that prioritise sustainability — for better operations and a better world. For legal departments, this creates both challenges and potential opportunities.

So how can you ensure you’re doing the right things to build that trust, and ultimately, drive growth? And what technology is out there to help legal departments achieve and facilitate these goals, with companies under increasing levels of scrutiny to move towards a green transition?

In this webinar, The Legal 500 and DocuSign bring together leading in-house speakers to discuss what technology is available to legal departments to establish and evolve sustainable practices.

Discussion points are set to cover:

  • What technology and digitising processes are available for legal departments to create a sustainable business strategy?  Why should these be implemented now?
  • How can you reduce your environmental impact with electronic signatures, and how can this change positively impact your company’s footprint on the environment?
  • What changes have in-house counsel already made within their organisations?
