Eversheds Corporate Social Responsibility Committee Objectives

What corporate responsibility means to us

Eversheds Sutherland's approach to CSR is based on a programme called “Fulfilling lives”. Fulfilling Lives is focused on maximising the potential of everyone in society.  This includes our own people and those who live in our communities.  By helping people who don’t necessarily have the same opportunities to succeed in life as we do, we strive to contribute to improving their lives. At the same time, we strive to help our own people by involving them in social activities beyond their normal professional skill set.  Fulfilling Lives focuses on the key areas of charity, education, pro bono legal services and the environment.

Our CSR goal is to inspire and galvanise the energy of our staff to instil a sense of positive contribution to our wider community and environment.  We seek to develop and foster those values internally by living the values, and then sharing and demonstrating these values externally.

We work closely with our staff, local communities, charities, schools and universities to ensure that our contribution to society is a positive one.  In living up to the ‘Fulfilling Lives’ philosophy, we also encourage a strong programme of volunteering among our staff.  We believe our employees gain a lot from these experiences, hopefully making them more rounded professionals, giving them the opportunity and instilling to give back to society at a meaningful level.
