Law Firm Appoints Chief Sustainability Officer

Law firms may not yet have a Chief Happiness Officer, but one law firm, Nixon Peabody, is the first to appoint a Chief Sustainability Officer, according to this news story (11/14/07).  Among other responsibilities, the CSO will work with the firm's operations director to develop green initiatives within the company,  reduce the company's carbon footprint and start sustainability projects with clients.

The article notes that Carolyn Kaplan, the firm's new CSO "works in Nixon Peabody's office but travels among the company's 17 locations."  Perhaps cutting back on inter-office trips and relying on Web technology and other virtual meeting strategies could serve as the firm's first step to reducing its carbon footprints.
