Mannheimer Swartling continues to strive for a better environment

Mannheimer Swartling has worked ambitiously to reduce the firm's environmental impact for many years. The firm has engaged in environmental management systems systematically over the past ten years and, since 2013, has been certified according to the international environmental management standard ISO 14001.

The firm is now further stepping up efforts and has initiated a full analysis of its climate footprint with the help of external consultants – a process that will result in a concrete strategy with clear climate and environmental targets. The firm will also investigate the possibility of measuring and remedying any indirect negative effects of the firm's legal advice.

"Mannheimer Swartling is at the forefront of sustainability efforts among law firms in Sweden. We want to contribute to sustainable social development. Taking responsibility for the environment is a high priority and it is natural for us to further strive to tackle the issue of climate change" says Emma Ihre, Head of Sustainability at Mannheimer Swartling.

"Every day, we see a strong environmental commitment among our employees and partners. We are very proud of this engagement and look forward to taking the next step in our work towards more sustainable social development," continues Jan Dernestam, Managing Partner at Mannheimer Swartling.
