Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

At Eglet Adams, our dedication goes beyond providing exceptional legal representation to embrace ESG principles. ESG, which stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance, is a framework investors use to assess a company's sustainability, social responsibility, and governance practices when making investment decisions.

In 2023, we formed an ESG Committee to integrate this forward-thinking concept into our firm. The committee consists of two Eglet Adams members representing each ESG pillar and regularly discusses current initiatives and develops strategies to enhance our ESG performance across all aspects of our operations. By promoting sustainability, fostering diversity and inclusion, and maintaining ethical governance practices, we aim to make a positive impact on the community we serve.

Eglet Adams strives to be at the forefront of environmental sustainability. We are proud to say that the firm has always prioritized eco-friendly initiatives, including constructing our office building with green energy and water efficiency in mind, reducing the usage of paper and single-use plastic as much as possible, and recycling. To increase our commitment to the environment, the firm has undertaken a comprehensive approach to the E in ESG,  key actions include:

  • Auditing the supply chain to ensure collaboration with businesses that uphold ESG compliance standards.
  • Conducting an NV energy assessment at our office building to optimize energy efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint.
  • Using compostable plates and utensils in place of plastic.
  • Transitioning from paper to digital business cards.
  • Promoting use of the water dispenser and reusable glassware over single-use plastic water bottles.
  • Transitioning from paper legal authorities to digital copies.

We are dedicated to fostering social responsibility through ESG initiatives. The firm's commitment to social well-being is evident through various actions, including:

  • Acceptance into the State Bar of Nevada's 2024 Diversity Equity Inclusion Program, signifying the firm's commitment to DEI initiatives focused on recruitment practices, retention practices, community initiatives, and training.
  • Attorney participation in Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs that specifically focus on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), ensuring a heightened awareness and understanding among legal professionals.
  • Creation of a calm room within the office designated for activities such as changing diapers, breastfeeding, private phone calls, relaxed meetings, or simply unwinding after a busy day.
  • Active engagement in philanthropy, demonstrating the firm's commitment to social causes and community development.
  • Ensuring employee access to comprehensive healthcare, financial services, and other benefits, enhancing overall well-being.
  • Adoption of flexible work arrangements, including remote work options and a four-day work week, emphasizing the firm's commitment to prioritizing work-life balance and accommodating diverse lifestyles.
  • Hosting a 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge and Black History Month Lunch and Learn, modeled after the American Bar Association’s challenge.
  • Planning monthly cultural celebrations to foster respect and open-mindedness for other cultures.
  • Encouraging Attorneys to participate in pro bono programs and cases in order to help others within the community.

The firm demonstrates a strong commitment to governance within its ESG framework, exemplified by several key initiatives:

  • Creation and distribution of a comprehensive employee handbook, serving as a foundational document that outlines the firm's values, policies, and expectations.
  • Implementation of risk and crisis management plans, showcasing the firm's dedication to proactively identifying and mitigating potential challenges.
  • Focusing on data protection, privacy, and cybersecurity measures, reflecting the firm's commitment to safeguarding sensitive information and maintaining the trust of clients and stakeholders.
  • Adherence to ESG reporting standards, providing transparent and accountable disclosure of the firm's environmental, social, and governance performance.
