We are eco-lighthouse certified!

At Wikborg Rein, we have a greater focus on what we as a company can do to take care of the environment. It is therefore exciting to announce that we are now eco-lighthouse certified.

Over the past year, we have undergone an extensive process to qualify for the eco-lighthouse certification. As an international law firm, we are aware of our global carbon footprint, and have established new environmentally friendly routines and goals to make our business even more sustainable. We have high demands on ourselves and our partners, and together we will contribute to a more sustainable future.

About the Eco-Lighthouse

The Eco-Lighthouse (ELH) certification scheme is Norway’s most widely used environmental management system.

Through easily-implemented, concrete, relevant and profitable (in the widest sense: local, regional, global) measures, enterprises can improve their environmental performance, control their environmental impact and prove their dedication to corporate responsibility. The Eco-Lighthouse is a valuable tool for authorities and for small, medium-sized and large enterprises in the quest for sustainability and increased eco-efficiency.

The Eco-Lighthouse certification scheme integrates environmental management and both internal and external environmental measures, into the Norwegian Regulations relating to Systematic Health, Environmental and Safety Activities in Enterprises (Internal Control Regulations). Being Eco-Lighthouse certified thus equals full compliance with the Internal Control Regulations and with the relevant environmental regulations pertaining to the enterprise.
