Within our practice structure, we consider our staff and employees to be our most valuable resource.
Aware that creativity springs from diversity, we welcome and respect differences in approaches, cultures and life orientations, to the ultimate benefit of our clients.
Faithful to our internal growth objectives and keen to encourage innovation in one way or another, the firm supports its lawyers in their ambitions and supports them in their academic or family projects.
In addition, Lexing is involved in the fight against harassment in all its forms.
Every economic activity has an environmental impact.
Lexing is committed to minimize its impact on the environment. In order to do so, we have taken actions such as:
Paper Recycling and Reducing the Use of Paper
- by using of mixed FSC paper (at least 70% recycled), Nordic Swan, TCF (Totally Chlorine Free) and Ecolabel;
- by printing double-sided by default
- by cancelling the automatic printing of every e-mail
- by keeping an electronic copy of documents and proceeding files to limit excessive printing
Public Transport and Collective Car Use
We encourage our members and clients to take the public transportations. These transports are systematically referenced in the access plan of the firm. The members of the firm are also invited to share their cars for every meeting.
Lexing promotes the use of IC Technologies. Therefore, each member of the staff receives a secure remote access to the firm’s server that enables them to telework.
Wherever it is possible, the firm replaces old lightbulbs with energy saving or LED devices. We consistently encourage the installation of energy saving materials when building new offices.
Limitation of Water Consumption
All our staff is committed to remedy any water leakage and avoid abundant consumption of water. We also try to include water-efficient devices in our offices (WC, etc.).
Our firm has replaced its electronic equipment and hardware with materials that consume less energy and show fewer toxic components (TCO, EPEAT and Energy Star).
Lexing also purchase recyclable batteries and toner.
In addition, according to a study from the WISCONSIN-GREEN BAY UNIVERSITY, our chosen font, “Century Gothic,” allows us to save 30% of ink, in comparison with other fonts.
We have replaced our old central heating machinery and following to an energy audit conducted in our Liège’s office we intend to soon replace our window frames.
Regular reminders about Responsible day-to-day Behaviours at the Office
We often remind our staff that they need to adopt a responsible behaviour towards the environment (e.g. switching off the light when leaving a room, sorting of garbage (glass/papers), using recyclable materials for any consumption goods (glass bottles instead of plastic) etc.
