Responsible Business

As an international firm we are rightly held to high standards in all we do. We believe that our license to operate, the sustainability of our business and the achievement of our vision are dependent on our ability to inspire trust and earn the confidence of all our stakeholders. To do this, we must act responsibly, creating long-term, sustainable value and supporting their future success. We use our commitment to the UN Global Compact, and associated global frameworks, to help shape our approach.

The concepts that are integral to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) are embedded in our Responsible Business strategy. For instance, we align our operations to contribute towards a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), focusing on those areas where we can make the greatest contribution, and we intend to continue to do so through to 2030.

Corporate social responsibility 

We have always endeavoured to go beyond our business focus and contribute to the well-being of all stakeholders, including the community at large. We believe that sustained economic growth cannot happen without social progress and the well-being of the communities we operate in. 

Our Corporate social responsibility (CSR) philosophy is focused on four principal areas: 

  • Our people are central to everything we do. We realise our potential by creating a safe, healthy and inclusive workplace, and by broadening our skills and experience. 
  • Our community, where we live and make our living. We focus our efforts on three themes: widening access to justice, access to finance and access to education. Our community initiatives span from pro bono work and volunteering in the community to charitable donations. 
  • Our environment and contributing to a more sustainable world is important to how we advise our clients and manage our business. 
  • Doing business responsibly through market-shaping practices in relation to ethics, professional standards and risk management is a top priority. 

Vision and objectives 

In alignment with its CSR philosophy and through various CSR programmes, the firm focuses on the areas of education, environment and women empowerment. We aim to achieve the firm's CSR objectives in the above focus areas by establishing guidelines and creating opportunities for employees to engage in socially responsible initiatives.

Women empowerment

Karigari Project 

This project aims to pioneer future skills for the creation of employment opportunities like organic farming and organic pit preparation, mobile repair shops, knitting, etc. The project uses a composite approach to bridge the demand and supply gap in workforce participation. On the supply side, the project works closely with businesses to identify suitable employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for women and youth, and develop their skills while also looking at participatory cost-sharing models that can ensure sustainability. On the demand side, the project is working towards building appropriate models that facilitate information dissemination, skill development and enterprise support for women. Literacy India conducted a community survey to identify and enrol beneficiaries. Approximately 100 women have benefited from the project.

Gurukul Project 

Since 2015, the we have partnered with Literacy India to support the education of approx. 120 tribal children (on a yearly basis) in Purulia (West Bengal). The Gurukul Project evolved from the need to educate meritorious children who have potential but cannot access mainstream formal education due to a lack of access, resources and opportunities. Under this project, we also support students who wish to pursue higher education towards achieving graduate, post-graduate and other job-oriented vocational qualifications in subjects such as engineering and business.
