Green Living & Corporate Operations
Print PDF

Employers have begun to feel the affects of green issues on the operations of their companies. Green buildings help employers attract top employees. Employment handbooks now incorporate policies on sustainability. Corporate boardrooms are filled with discussions on green standards in operations, manufacturing, and investing. The triple bottom line—profit, people, and planet—is increasingly a major factor in corporate policy. Investors are rethinking investment decisions to place more money with environmentally conscientious corporations. Our attorneys work with clients to thoroughly incorporate green and sustainability concepts and policies into their businesses.

Jones Walker's attorneys have experience advising public companies on the disclosure of climate-related risks as part of their obligations under U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules and the Public Company Accounting Reform and Investor Protection Act. Furthermore, we advise clients on the myriad of tax credits and incentive programs available to businesses and individuals.
