Responsible Business Report 2023



Our Responsible Business Strategy

The Management Board monitor and oversee the execution of the strategy through global partner led steering committees for each of the three pillars. Each steering committee has the delegated authority of our Management Board to embed the strategies within each of our regions and to be responsible for delivery of the strategies. The steering committees monitor and report progress of each of the Regional Boards to the Management Board on a bi-annual basis. Given its broad impact and importance across the firm, it is treated as a cross-services initiative with key members of the firm’s senior management team involved in the steering committees alongside our partners. Each steering committee consists of several partners representing each of our regional teams together with a Management Board partner representative, a senior management representative (CEO or COO) and, respectively, our Head of Diversity & Inclusion, Head of Pro Bono & Social Impact, and Chief Sustainability Officer.

We are a dynamic, rapidly expanding global law firm committed to operating as a responsible business. This means progressing towards a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the diversity of our communities and clients, using our legal skills to support our communities through Pro Bono work, volunteering and charitable partnerships in the areas where we live and work, and managing and reducing our environmental impact. As a people business, we are committed to valuing everyone who works here, treating them as individuals and helping them flourish so they can fulfil their potential. The key areas of our Responsible Business Strategy are represented by the following three pillars: • Diversity & Inclusion

• Environmental Sustainability & Biodiversity

• Pro Bono & Social Impact
