GUIDELINES The Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Having a well-balanced team is just as important to us as a healthy work-life balance and equal career opportunities for all. That’s why we offer flexible working models and individual solutions. We have an above-average number of female partners in our management team and work with organisations that promote women in business.
We want to ensure decent working conditions for all our staff. For us, that encompasses workplace equipment, continuous professional development, and transparent and ongoing communication. We also expect our service providers and suppliers to meet all the relevant labour law standards.
Before we purchase anything, we first decide whether it’s actually necessary or whether there are any alternatives. Sustainability criteria are applied when we buy equipment and office supplies. And we make sure that the food and drink we order in is produced to fair-trade standards and is seasonal and regional. We’ve drawn up guidelines that set out these principles.
Climate protection has a bearing on all areas of our work. We’ve re-evaluated all our travel practices and whenever possible take the train for domestic business trips. We offset the carbon footprint of any unavoidable flights. We’ve switched to green electricity and are mindful of energy efficiency when it comes to lighting, printers and servers.
As an organ of the administration of justice, we have a responsibility to stand up for the principles of the rule of law, and we work with national and international associations in this field.
We’re a member of the following associations: the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA), the German Federal Association of Commercial Law Firms (BWD), the International Bar Association and the Swedish Bar Association. Networking within these organisations helps us come up with more concrete ideas on how to implement the SDGs. We also support Viva con Agua and Planet Tree.
