We actively engage with the social and environmental impacts of our operations.
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program specifically focuses on three streams – community, reconciliation and the environment. Through these programs we:
- Work to ensure the justice system is accessible to everyone by helping parts of the community who cannot afford legal assistance;
- Monitor, improve and report on our environmental performance to our key clients, and to the public;
- Commit with our suppliers of goods and services to achieve better environmental and social sustainability by managing our procurement processes;
- Maintain an open work place where staff are encouraged to commit to causes, and provide the flexibility to enable them to do that.
We report on our CSR performance to the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA). AusLSA is an industry-led association working collaboratively to improve sustainability in the legal profession. AusLSA’s sustainability framework includes sustainable and inclusive workplaces, community support, environmental conservation and responsible governance. See G+T’s performance in the AusLSA 2019 Legal Sector Sustainability Update.
We continue to look for ways to improve our contribution as a responsible corporate citizen.
