New CSR report: Value-adding partnership
In our 2016 CSR report, we focus, among other things, on how our cooperation model, the Bech-Bruun model, creates value among colleagues, with clients and in society.
The Bech-Bruun model was launched in 2016 and it is designed to ensure that we create value for our clients through cooperation. Accordingly, cooperation and value-creation have also been key among our CSR initiatives in 2016.
In a knowledge-based undertaking such as Bech-Bruun, our employees are our key resource and throughout 2016 we have focused on development options for our employees. We have, among other things, held courses for our interns and other law students providing them with the tools necessary to obtain a healthy academic life. In addition, we have through Bech-Bruun Academy offered a number of programmes, courses and events for clients, business partners and other interested parties and this way we have set the stage for value-creation among our various stakeholders.
Partnerships and pro bono work
2016 saw the conclusion of our four-year YIELD project with Save the Children Denmark. This project has focused on establishing social-economic empowerment of young people in three districts in northern Uganda where almost 1,000 young people have during the course of the project completed a vocational or trainee programme.
Bech-Bruun has also performed pro bono work for organisations such as the Danish Red Cross, the Mary Foundation and WWF Denmark, all working for a better world – locally as well as globally.
With our 2016 CSR report, we are for the eighth year running confirming our commitment to the UN Global Compact.
