Our commitment to sustainability

We aim to minimize our impact on the environment – to protect the planet, ensure that resources are available for future generations and create a better quality of life for all living beings. We integrate sustainability best practice into all our decision-making and business activities. We recognize our responsibility to address environmental issues that jeopardize the earth’s ecosystems and the future of our communities and as a firm we work on reducing our environmental footprint and are active on many pro bono projects in the areas of sustainability.

Norton Rose Fulbright supports the Sustainable Development Goals. We have adopted the UN Sustainable Development Goals as our overarching guiding principles. With the goals being the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, we focus on those where we can have the greatest impact.
