Taking Steps Toward a More Sustainable Company

August 5, 2019

LECGI Inc. is working toward a more “green” company. We presented a plan, our Green Initiative, to put in motion the three “Rs”: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Our employees were given information on how to use less paper, office supplies, and energy such as keeping digital files, printing on both sides of the paper, and turning the lights off if they leave their office for more than 15 minutes. We also gave better information on how to utilize our pre-existing recycling bins. LECGI plans to improve our workplace by being mindful and respectful of our environment.
