Being a responsible business means acting with purpose: embedding sustainability across our operations as we work to build a sustainable future for our clients, our people, our communities and our planet.

We uphold the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact and have aligned our efforts with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We view the UN SDGs as a road map to achieving our future vision for our Firm and an opportunity to collaborate with like-minded organizations to achieve our shared goals. Identified by a thorough materiality assessment, taking into account the values and opinions of stakeholders from across our entire value chain, our prioritized SDGs (as set out below) align with the core values that underpin not just our sustainability strategy but also our overall Firm strategy. We live by these values every day and use them to guide our environmental, social and governance (ESG) efforts and commitments.

Our Commitment

Baker McKenzie is committed to being a Firm that not only provides premier legal services, but also promotes and sponsors activities that provide opportunities for all Firm personnel to contribute — independently and in partnership with our clients — to the well-being of the communities in which we live and work through our CSR, pro bono and inclusion, diversity and equity initiatives.
