Companies that perform well by sustainability and ESG criteria take a proactive approach and go beyond simple compliance with current regulations and accepted industry expectations for performance, transparency and accountability. They hold themselves to higher standards, anticipate future issues and make long-term strategic investments to address issues that impact their business and sector and the wider community.
Through our market-leading Pro Bono team we work closely with civil society, vulnerable individuals and governments across the world, including in post-conflict and less-developed countries. This allows us to understand the issues faced by vulnerable communities around the world and offers a unique insight into emerging SESG issues in the legal sector and beyond. More than 70% of our lawyers participate in pro bono work each year, helping us to promote access to justice and human rights, and fulfilling our core mission to make business better, delivering over 200,000 hours of pro bono legal advice each year.
