Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate social responsibility is a priority in Gorrissen Federspiel’s corporate governance and business activities.

In 2018, we joined the UN Global Compact, which is the world’s widest-reaching initiative for corporate responsibility. Since then, we have focused our CSR on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the UN as benchmarks for sustainable development to be achieved by 2030.

Our CSR policy serves as the foundation for our corporate social responsibility initiatives. We have chosen to focus our efforts on the rule of law and the education and development of children and young people in Denmark and abroad. We make our knowledge and competence available, as we believe that this is the best way for us to contribute. The policy sets out our approach to CSR and is available to all employee groups to ensure broad support.

We take an active role in CSR issues

As a company, we share responsibility to ensure sustainable development. We have therefore joined the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We focus specifically on our contribution to seven selected SDGs, as we believe that we can make a difference addressing these seven goals.

The seven SDGs are:

  • Goal 4 – Quality education
  • Goal 5 – Gender equality
  • Goal 8 – Decent work and economic growth
  • Goal 10 – Reduced inequalities
  • Goal 12 – Responsible consumption and production
  • Goal 13 – Climate action
  • Goal 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions

The SDGs serve as guidelines for how we prioritise our CSR efforts and sustainability initiatives both now and going forward.

The UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is the world’s widest-reaching initiative for corporate social responsibility. Gorrissen Federspiel has joined this important global community of corporations wishing to take on social responsibility.

The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact cover the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, which are founded on internationally acclaimed conventions.

By joining the UN Global Compact, we committed, among other things, to integrating the Ten Principles into our strategy, corporate culture and activities. As a company, we also undertake to report annually to the UN Global Compact on our CSR efforts and progress.

Pro bono

Through our pro bono work, we make our knowledge and skills available to relevant companies, interest groups and private individuals. We often assist organisations and initiatives that may otherwise find it difficult to obtain the necessary legal assistance.
