In May of 2018, Walkers elected to move into LEED Gold accredited Exchange Building in the IFSC when planning an office move to a larger premises. The building boasts: A3 building energy rating; all energy consumed is 100% renewable; high efficiency cascade gas boiler system; heat recovery system; high efficiency curtain wall glazing; low use water outlets; smart building management system and LED lighting throughout. Walkers encourages reducing and, when possible, eliminating the use of disposable products. Source reduction decreases the consumption of valuable resources through various workplace practices. Walkers is fully committed to protecting the environment and sustainability principles. This support includes a commitment to purchase, use and dispose products and materials in a manner that will best utilise natural resources and minimise any negative impact on the Earth’s environment.

In February of 2019, Walkers’ Dublin office launched our “Walkers Goes Green” initiative committing to investing time and resources into developing a more sustainable operation by becoming more energy efficient and reducing carbon emissions. The firm and our employees made a carbon pledge to support the biodiversity initiative, which includes more advanced methods of recycling (including the removal from general waste bins from our offices), compostable bins, planting a tree for each new client brought on board and bee honey harvesting on the roof of the building.
