Ballard Spahr is one of only 15 designated pilot law firms in the country participating in the American Bar Association's Law Firm Sustainability Policy Project. Implemented through all our offices, the model policy calls for a commitment to achieve sustainability through economic, social, and environmental responsibility. Our Sustainability Committee of partners and support staff from the firm's 15 offices works to better every aspect of the organization, fostering respect for community while at the same time wisely using and managing environmental and economic resources. Three Ballard Spahr partners served on the drafting committee that put together both the model ABA policy and the checklist used in implementation.
