McCown & Evans LLP provides legal services and counseling on United States and global immigration law. In addition to the company’s stance in representing immigration needs, it is also becoming a leader in implementing sustainable practices to foster environmental health. For example, McCown & Evans is committed to only using ENERGY STAR certified equipment, motion sensor energy efficient lighting, 100% green cleaning products, and recycled toner cartridges. The use of recycled cartridges alone has saved between $666 and $3,600 annually! To incentivize the use of public transportation, the company invests in the Commuter Checks Program and provides staff with $86 per month. The result: 100% participation in the program by staff, eliminating emissions from the collective total of 118,000 miles driven by employees annually. The company encourages clients to participate in Skype conferences and consultations with clients in lieu of driving. These efforts aid McCown & Evans’ commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save approximately $350,000 in potential fuel costs for the firm. This company uses local services such as JetSet Courier, a bike messenger company, and participates in electronic waste recycling events bi-annually. These achievements were recognized by the Pyramid Center, which awarded the company with the Carbon Footprint Award in 2010. Moreover, the company has earned a reputation as the first immigration boutique law firm to be certified as a San Francisco Green Business. McCown & Evans LLP continues to set the bar high for future sustainability endeavors, aiming to have a paperless office by June 2017.
