Sustainability Policy

Specialist solicitors to the construction and engineering industries

Hawkswell Kilvington believes that protecting the environment and natural resources is crucial for our employees, clients, and local community.


While law firms have a reputation for generating more than their fair share of paper, we are making a concerted effort to operate as a sustainable law firm.


Here are just some of ways in which we strive to reduce our impact on the environment:


  • Commuting and Business Travel we encourage the use of Microsoft Teams for client meetings and introduced a working from home policy which has reduced the amount of time spent in the office, therefore reducing the amount of CO2 emissions generated.  
  • Purchasing “Green”purchasing decisions – from law firm stationery to beverage containers – are now made through a lens of sustainability. Whenever feasible, we give preference to materials that are recyclable, and have recycled content.
  • Resource Reduction – the firm employs energy conservation and efficiency strategies in its heating, cooling, lighting, and business equipment systems (for example, motion-sensor lights and EV charging).
  • Waste Reduction Hawkswell Kilvington attempts to conserve paper by discouraging unnecessary printing and copying and distributing office communications by email rather than paper. We reuse equipment and supplies as we can and maximise recycling. We provide washable dishware and dishwashers to reduce the use of disposables and have supplied reusable water bottles to all staff.
