As part of its UNGC membership, the firm provides a Communication on Progress (COP) every year, highlighting our progress and initiatives within four core areas – human rights, labor rights, anti-corruption, and the environment. In 2022, our Communication on Progress was integrated in our Sustainability Report (PDF).
- Human rights: Wikborg Rein supports and upholds international human rights, we ensure that our operations do not contribute to any violations of these rights. As a global law firm, we recognise that we are exposed both directly and indirectly to ethical risk, and we take our responsibility as lawyers seriously in reducing such risks.
- Worker Rights: We value our employees as our most important resource, and we are committed to ensuring that their freedom of association is always respected. At Wikborg Rein, we have a zero-tolerance policy for child labor, forced labor, harassment, and discrimination, and we strive to create a safe and inclusive workplace for all.
- Anti-corruption: As legal professionals, it is our duty to promote justice and prevent wrongdoing. Fighting corruption is not just a moral obligation for us but is also a fundamental part of our ethical guidelines that all Wikborg Rein employees must follow.
- Environment: We take a precautionary approach to environmental challenges and strive to safeguard our environmental responsibility. At Wikborg Rein, we encourage the development and sharing of eco-friendly technology and focus on deploying technology-driven solutions where ever possible to reduce our environmental impact.
