Burges Salmon launches latest Responsible Business performance report

Posted: 16th February 2022

The firm plays its part in delivering a sustainable future through its operations, client work and community engagement

Burges Salmon has launched its latest Responsible Business Report for 2021, detailing how the firm plays its part in delivering a sustainable future through its operations, client work and community engagement.

Responsible business is integral to Burges Salmon, connecting how the firm does business delivering legal services to clients, its approach to reducing any environmental impact and the wider role the firm plays in society. As part of its commitment to the UN Global Compact, the firm reports annually on progress through this report.

This third report details both Burges Salmon’s commitments and progress. It includes information on the approach, priorities and progress of the firm and is structured as follows:

• The firm’s approach
• Wellbeing and engagement
• Inclusive workplace
• Environmental sustainability
• Employment and human rights
• Collaboration and innovation
• Key performance indicators

Kirsty Green-Mann, Head of Corporate Responsibility at Burges Salmon, comments: “What has continued to make a real impression on me this year and throughout the pandemic is how much responsible business is a priority and how my colleagues got involved. Responsible business is really a part of who we are. I’m therefore excited to announce the launch of our latest report, which provides a comprehensive overview and update of our firm’s contribution economically, socially and environmentally.”
