Doing business responsibly
Freshfields and responsible business
The way we do business at Freshfields reflects who we are and what we stand for. We want to provide our clients the best legal advice. And we want to do so responsibly.
The COVID-19 crisis and governmental responses to it are causing profound changes, affecting individuals, businesses and nations. That is in turn putting renewed emphasis on the importance of trust. Today, more than ever, business has a critical role to play as people, businesses and economies recover from the effects of the crisis and as a new social contract emerges. As a firm we are committed to play a full and responsible role in this process of recovery and change.
Our approach to responsible business focuses on:
- our commitment to responsible working practices, including our environmental impact and becoming a more diverse and inclusive workplace;
- making a positive difference to the communities we touch, especially through our pro bono work and community investment activities; and
- supporting our clients in the transition to a sustainable future through our client sustainability work.
