Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility

We believe CSR positively impacts the world, which is why we take our corporate social responsibilities very seriously.

CSR is a priority for us

As a reputable, international law firm, we feel a strong sense of responsibility for the development of a more sustainable society. It’s why we ensure that CSR remains an integral part of our firm and culture.

First and foremost, our CSR contribution to society is rooted in effective legal advice and relevant pro bono work. Further to these areas, we are investing in a diverse and inclusive culture in which talented people can thrive regardless of gender and ethnicity. We also provide financial and in-kind sponsorship of organisations dedicated to academia, the arts and the wellbeing of children.

We are minimising our environmental impact by embracing new technologies and inspiring people to continuously make conscious decisions on whether their behavior would best fit an environmentally friendly approach.

These are important steps and we aim to do even more in the years ahead involving our people, our clients and our peers. Together, we want to ensure the legal profession in general, and our firm in particular, continues to contribute to a sustainable society.

Defining our responsibilities

CSR values at Stibbe

To guide everyone in our firm, we have defined CSR values. Each one is embedded with key principles which are acted upon daily, underlining our commitment and resolve in this important area.

Creating a distinctive culture

Diversity is paramount to us

To provide our clients with effective legal advice, we need to create a stimulating environment in which to work. It’s why we aim to build a culture that attracts and nurtures talent. It’s what we have done in the past and what we seek to do for years to come.

Building stronger communities

Giving back to our local communities

We feel it is both our duty and our privilege to return something to the communities in which we operate. It’s why we sponsor cultural events, academic pursuits, children in need and more.

Safeguarding the environment

Helping to ensure a better tomorrow

We are concerned about pollution and the depletion of natural resources. Through reduction of our carbon footprint and our internal sustainability policies, we are committed to making a difference.

Pro Bono

Helping worthy causes

Pro bono is an important and integral part of our firm. Our lawyers provide their time and expertise to assist those who might not otherwise receive such advice. Discover the range of our matters we have undertaken here.
