Hudson McKenzie has always been at the forefront of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) and adheres to a strict set of standards for the firm’s operations. Environmental criteria consider how we perform as a steward of nature including adopting strategies to minimise the effects of climate change.
In this new world order, social criteria examines how we manage relationships with employees, suppliers, clients and the communities where we operate. We are one of a few law firms worldwide who have reached their target of ‘net zero’ by adopting a paperless office, use of electric company cars, minimising air business travel amongst taking other vital steps to reduce our carbon footprint.
We firmly believe ESG is about who we are and who we want to be and as such we place paramount importance to corporate social responsibility. It influences every aspect of our operations; the way we do business, the way we work together, the way in which we contribute to our community and manage our impact on the environment. Our ESG programme includes initiatives in the areas of Pro-Bono, Community, Diversity & Inclusion, Environment, Supply Chain and Ethics & Risk Management.
The firm vehemently promotes LGBTIQA+ and does not discriminate on the grounds of race, sexual orientation, colour and disability.
We aim to further our ESG programme with initiatives in the areas of Pro-Bono, Community, Diversity & Inclusion, Environment, Supply Chain and Ethics & Risk Management.
Recognizing it will take alignment of all our organizations to scale impact globally, we invite you to join the movement as a Steward of Inclusive Capitalism. Together, the collective action of Council members will contribute to a fairer, more inclusive and sustainable future for all people and our planet.
