As part of the GreenTheme for Q2 - Travel - AusLSA is seeking information on travel policies and practices across the legal sector. Your answers will help AusLSA prepare a report on travel in the legal sector and deliver more relevant content on sustainable travel options.

AusLSA has also prepared a Staff Travel Survey that you can distribute throughout your firm to get an idea of what your staff think about commuting, virtual technologies and business travel. You will be provided with a report of the responses received from your firm. The link will be available upon completion of this survey.
