Public defender's office goes green

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Office of the Public Defender of Indiana is now an American Bar Association Law Office Climate Challenge Partner. The ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources partnered with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to encourage law offices and organizations to try to be more energy efficient.

The public defender's office now prints on copiers instead of laser printers. This will save paper because copiers can print on both sides and money because copier ink is cheaper.

In April 2009 the Indiana Court of Appeals became the first court in the country to be named a Law Office Climate Challenge Partner for implementing a plan to reduce paper usage. Several law firms with Indiana offices also are partners. For more information about the ABA's Climate Challenge program, visit
