Learn more about our initiatives

Can you imagine a society where everyone’s rights are respected? Where everyone has access to justice? This is what drives us! We promote the evolution of legal work to generate a positive impact on society.

Diversity & Inclusion Program

Transformation starts from the inside out. That is why we develop and support actions that promote an even more inclusive and equal-opportunity work environment. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program is structured on five pillars – gender equity, LGBTQIAP+ rights, racial equity, disability rights, and religious freedom, which are supported by six separate affinity groups.

Corporate volunteering

Innovative volunteering empowers people and generates a positive social impact. Mova, our corporate volunteering program, fosters our professionals' social awareness and encourages action that reflects the firm's positive contribution to society. More than 360 of our professionals are currently involved in on-site and virtual volunteering efforts, both in Brazil and abroad, through partnerships with civil society organizations from different sectors.

Commitment to the environment

We have signed up to the United Nations Business Ambition for 1.5°C: Our Only Future campaign, establishing the goal of zeroing our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. We are also part of the Net Zero Lawyers Alliance, a group of leading international law firms that mobilizes and collaborates to tackle climate change. We are also the first law firm in Brazil with short-term GHG reduction targets approved and declared by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) – a partnership consisting of the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). This initiative seeks to spur the private sector to take ambitious action by setting science-based emission reduction targets. We also disclose our GHG inventory each year, which maps out and quantifies our emissions while identifying priority sources and reduction opportunities.
