"MoFo IT Gets Its Green On"

Kudos to Morrison & Foerster for adopting a strong 'green' culture! Find four good ideas in this Legal Technology article:

"With 1,070 lawyers in 18 offices throughout the world, Morrison & Foerster has a culture that promotes excellence, diversity, teamwork and social responsibility. Last year, we were selected as one of Fortune magazine's '2006 Best Companies to Work For,' and the firm has won numerous other accolades that reflect our commitment to these goals.

"Among these priorities is our commitment to create a work environment that is healthy and environmentally responsible. Our IT department has initiated a number of programs designed not only to help to minimize our impact on the environment, but also generate real savings. Here are a few of our recent programs:

1. CRT to LCD

"Our first project was designed to save desktop space, as well as eyes and power. Over the last four years, we have significantly reduced our power consumption in our offices and data centers by replacing all cathode ray tube monitors with liquid crystal display units. LCD monitors consume less power and have a longer life than CRT monitors. As a result, we have saved roughly 619 megawatts of power per year -- enough to power 58 average American homes for one full year."

Author Anthony Hoke is global technology purchasing/asset manager at Morrison & Foerster, based in Los Angeles.
