Corporate social responsibility
Our corporate social responsibility programme is an integral part of our firm's culture.
We believe there is more to work than your ‘day job’ and we want to ensure that our people have the opportunity to give back in whatever way they can.
We promote a culture that encourages the development of new ideas and initiatives to help address issues that affect our society today. Whether through fundraising activities across our domestic and global network of offices or our efforts to improve the environment we live in, we aim to make a difference to people's lives and local communities.
Our corporate social responsibility programme is focused on:
We have supported Age International, as our selected corporate charity, since 2015. With projects in 33 countries, Age International supports older people in developing countries. They help older people escape poverty, receive the right kind of healthcare, survive emergencies, and have their contributions to families and communities recognised and valued. In addition to this, and as a global firm, we remain committed to local charities and communities in which we have a presence and can make a difference. Examples of our community work include initiatives such as Club Rainbow (Singapore), Hong Chi Association and Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation Pink Walk (both Hong Kong), Legal Walks (UK), St Cecilia Church and Seminary (US) and Wayside Chapel (Australia).
An example of our global CSR work is outlined below, by our offices in Hong Kong and Moscow.
The Hong Kong office has been supporting Hong Chi Association (“Hong Chi”), a non-profit making organisation dedicated to serve over 7,000 people of all ages and all grades of intellectual disabilities since 2014. In December 2017, colleagues from the Hong Kong office visited Hong Chi’s hostel and celebrated the festive season with the residents there. Apart from Hong Chi, the Hong Kong office also showed their continuous support to the Hong Kong Breast Cancer Foundation (“HKBCF”) by sponsoring and participating the annual Pink Walk. Over 70 staff, together with family and friends attended the Pink Walk in October 2017. The Hong Kong office has received the Caring Company award from 2016 – 2018 and will continue to show their support by organising various charitable activities in future.
Our office in Moscow actively supports Christmas charity events, regularly donating gifts to charities that support children with disabilities in foster care or orphanages. Our people in Moscow also contributes to the Charity Shop program on a regular basis.
This social initiative is designed to provide a support platform for those from disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their social skills and employment prospects.
