Responsible Business

Partnering for change

As a leader in our field, we are rightly held to high standards in all we do. We are committed to inspiring the trust of our stakeholders by making Responsible Business a central part of our strategy.

We believe that...

  • Our licence 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 – our clients, our people and civil society. To do this we must act responsibly, creating long-term value and supporting their future success. Therefore, our stakeholders are at the heart of our strategy.
  • Our ability to build a successful business is dependent on having strong relationships across our stakeholder groups and making a useful contribution to business and wider civil society.We believe that clients choose to work with organisations that share their values, who are committed to long-term relationships, and where collaboration has greatest impact.
  •  Developing our ability to work collaboratively, and being challenged with new ways of thinking and working, through a broad range of experience, means we are better able to understand what clients value and how to deliver it.
  •  The skills, insights and experience developed through our Responsible Business programme improve our ability to secure high value mandates, seeking always to do the best work and providing our clients with the most effective support.
  • Developing a culture of respect and support that provides opportunities for fulfilling work, enables us to recruit and build rewarding careers for the best talent.

Racial Justice Award

In response to the civil unrest and increased focus on racial equality and justice in the US, the UK, and internationally following the killing of George Floyd, and in particular increased activity by the Black Lives Matter movement, Clifford Chance has launched a Racial Justice Award. 

The Award is open to not-for-profit organisations around the world that help individuals, groups or communities use the law to achieve significant social, inclusion and racial justice impact.
