Our most important resource is the knowledge of our employees. Knowledge is power, and this power can be used to make a positive difference in business and society.
As lawyers, through various initiatives and pro bono work. As advisors, by contributing to the advice we give both creating value for the client and for society in general. And as one of Norway's largest law firm, by setting strict ethical requirements for ourselves and ensuring that we have a positive impact on the society around us through responsible advising.
In recent years, we have seen a significant development in requirements and expectations for the business community to act responsibly. It is increasingly expected that companies respect human rights, the environment, fight corruption and comply with other relevant legislation.
In addition, we wish to contribute positively to this development and use our competence to support UN's sustainable development goal number 14 – Life below water. We will contribute by informing about what is expected of a responsible business sector and by supporting projects that work for increased knowledge about the ocean's role in a sustainable development.
