CONTRIBUTING TO A GREEN FUTURE. Final Green bodhi leaf with text

Watkins Ross is doing our part as stewards of our environment and as good neighbors to our clients and community. We believe it’s important to be environmentally conscious and reduce our carbon footprint. Through our green initiative, WR2 (Watkins Ross Waste Reduction), we are committed to reducing consumption and limiting our waste by not using, and ultimately disposing of, as much paper.

FACTS:

  • 24 million tons of paper are still being discarded vs. recycled, even though paper being sent to landfills has dropped by ½ since 2000.
  • 1 ton of paper = 200,000 sheets of paper
  • 1 ton of paper = 24 trees
  • The average office worker prints 10,000 sheets of paper per year

Through WR2, we established internal guidelines for the use of paper and will work towards implementing future changes to further reduce our carbon footprint.
