Environmental Stewardship

We acknowledge that our operations have an impact on the environment, and we commit to implementing measures to minimize those effects. To do so, we continuously seek opportunities to engage our members, collaborate with green energy clients, and partner with conservation organizations.

Our areas of focus are waste management, energy consumption, business travel, and commuting. Examples of the initiatives McInnes Cooper has implemented include:

  • Setting the defaults on all firm printers to duplex, resulting in an annual reduction of 5 million sheets of paper compared to 2010
  • Planting 7,000 trees since 2014 in an effort to mitigate paper usage
  • Introducing sustainable coffee machines that use biodegradable pods and packaging
  • Participating in eco-volunteer projects, such as the Great Fundy Coastal Cleanup and the McNabs Island Shore Cleanup
  • Offering a public transit subsidy and participation in the SmartTrip XPass program in Halifax
  • Supporting ride-sharing programs through coverage of CarShare membership fees
  • Encouraging use of conferencing software versus business travel
  • Investing in clean energy projects, including the addition of solar panels on the Dalhousie Schulich School of Law Weldon Building and a solar panels awning at the Hope Blooms Community Kitchen
