Nowadays the word "green" can take on many different meanings. Sure it's a color--but it can also describe something or someone that is fresh and new. As the new editor of InsideCounsel, some may even refer to me as "green." But through the years, green has taken on a more important meaning--it describes the growing global movement to support and protect the environment. This Green movement has affected all of us one way or another.
For the record, I don't fancy myself an environmental activist (I sometimes forget to turn off the kitchen light), but I try to do my part (that kitchen light fixture houses a compact fluorescent bulb). So I was excited to learn that my inaugural issue as editor of InsideCounsel wasn't only our first-ever themed issue, but also was one that would focus on the Green movement's impact on corporate legal departments.
