Argon Law goes solar for good
Mon Nov 19, 2018
Sunshine Coast commercial law firm, Argon Law, has taken the next big step towards sustainability by switching to solar energy to run their Maroochydore office.
John Gallagher, founding director at Argon Law, is delighted to see this lasting green footprint come to fruition on the Primary School Court building.
“With the support of our landlord, Palmyra on Primary’s Martin Kurvink, we had 72 solar panels installed on the building’s roof – enough to provide well over 100% green energy for the running of the office," John said.
“Not only is this significant step in line with our company values of “encouraging initiative and innovation”, it will also make a positive difference to our bottom line to, saving us $4000 annually.
“For our team, the provision of solar energy demonstrates the tangible difference we can make to our environment – both micro and macro – it’s a big step for us, and a small but meaningful contribution to our global footprint.
“Similarly, we are working towards our goal of going paperless. We still have a way to go, however, encouragingly more and more or our communication is digital, saving an enormous amount of paper, ink and electrical output as well as archiving space!”
The values which Argon Law dedicates itself to include:
- working hard for our clients, providing superior legal services on a timely, effective, and efficient basis, and maintaining the highest standards of professional integrity. We treat our clients' business as though it is our own;
- actively promoting our clients and look for ways to grow the value of their businesses and improve their lives;
- fostering an enjoyable working environment, based on open communication and mutual respect, and will encourage initiative, innovation, teamwork, and loyalty;
- continuing our long tradition of service and leadership.
John believes he and his team of eight staff, are living these values in earnest.
“For our clients, we really do treat matters as if they are our own and are proud to receive the regular and favourable testaments reiterating our friendly, accurate and accessible service.
“For our staff, we pride ourselves in working well in a flexible and efficient environment. Five out of our eight staff, work in non-traditional 9-5 arrangements, both in and away from the Maroochydore office, providing satisfying and enjoyable working livelihoods.
“And for our community, Argon Law is committed to giving back to the communities it serves.
“Whether it's providing volunteer legal advice, supporting the growth of tertiary education, or helping fund vital support to those with illness and physical disabilities, for example as Principal Sponsor of the Buderim 9 Challenge, we believe the expression “good corporate citizenship” must be tangible, meaningful and collaborative.”
