Debevoise has replaced all plastic water bottles in the firm’s New York and London conference rooms with reusable glass bottles from Vivreau Advanced Water Systems, for internal and external meetings alike. This initiative has saved more than 250,000 plastic bottles to date. Debevoise was one of the first major US law firms to take this step, and has since implemented the program at our London and Frankfurt offices as well.
Over ten years ago, New York City announced its Bikes in Buildings program to encourage New Yorkers to bike to work. After considerable negotiations with our building administrators, Debevoise launched the Bike Access Plan providing secure and free bicycle parking for attorneys and staff.
