Haeggquist & Eck Joins Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program
Monday, 29 July 2019
Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a Southern California employee and consumer rights advocate firm, committed to clients, community, and social justice, has joined the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program.
The firm’s environmental commitments are both financial and practical. Using recycled and reusable products, 100% post-consumer recycled paper, rechargeable batteries is the firm’s practical way of shrinking its carbon footprint. Recognizing that even these efforts do not eliminate the firm’s carbon footprint from office energy usage, business travel and employee commuting, the Carbonfree® Business Partnership Program enables Haeggquist & Eck to neutralize its remaining operational emissions through support of third-party validated carbon offset projects preserving forestlands around the globe.
“At Haeggquist & Eck, we take a truly 360-degree approach to responsible corporate citizenship, and our commitment to giving back extends beyond the consumers and employees we fight for in court to caring for planet,” explains Alreen Haeggquist, Managing Partner and Founder. “Financially partnering with organizations like Carbonfund.org, whose efforts and research are leading the way to combat global climate change, just makes sense for us. Carbonfund.org’s mission and work are crucial to caring for our fragile Mother Earth, and we’re grateful for the chance to partner.”
You won’t find disposables in the office, and each staff member has a desk scanner for imaging documents for review to limit the use of our office copier. Haeggquist & Eck supports local farmers and purveyors and only buy locally grown, organic fruits and veggies for employees and staff to enjoy at work.
Haeggquist & Eck proudly represents employees in a broad range of cases against their employers and litigate claims relating to harassment, discrimination, retaliation, equal pay, and wage theft. The firm also successfully pursued class actions against corporations for securities fraud and a wide range of unlawful practices, including deceptive advertising, product defect, senior annuities fraud, and race discrimination in insurance underwriting.
The firm proudly participates in the Nature Conservancy’s “Plant a Billion” campaign, through which trees are planted in an endangered South American rainforest, and to care for its own coastal city, office staff frequently participate in volunteer initiatives including beach clean-ups and attending events for the Climate Action Campaign.
