Roschier’s ISO 14001 environmental certification renewed

We have been ISO-certified since 2011, when we became the only law firm in the Nordic region to hold the ISO 14001 environmental certificate for all of our offices. In December, the auditors granted us renewal of the certificate for the three-year period 2021-2023.

At Roschier, we integrate sustainable options in our daily work and consider environmental aspects in our decision-making processes. We minimize the use of paper and plastic at the offices and recycle as much waste as possible.  We also do not offer bottled water on our premises. In normal times, we aim to limit travel between our offices, by promoting videoconferencing, and we compensate for our travel emissions.

Both buildings in which our offices are located hold a LEED certificate (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design); LEED Platinum in Helsinki and LEED Gold in Stockholm. Our Stockholm office is powered entirely by solar energy whereas in Helsinki we use only wind energy.

ISO 14001 is an environmental management system intended for use by an organization seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability. The ISO 14001 environmental certificate is granted by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). There are more than 300,000 certifications to ISO 14001 in 171 countries around the world.
