At Kourtellos & Co, we are committed to excellence not only in the legal services we provide but also in our responsibility towards the environment, society, and good governance.
We understand that sustainable business practices are not just a trend but a crucial aspect of creating a better future for all stakeholders. Therefore, we have developed a comprehensive Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) policy that guides our actions and decisions.
Our ESG Policy is deeply rooted in our firm's values, culture and initiatives.
ESG is a fundamental aspect of our business approach, contributing to sustainable development by generating economic, social, and environmental benefits.
The purpose of this Policy is to provide an overview of our responsible business practices. We value feedback from our people and clients, encouraging alternative approaches to further enhance our sustainable efforts.
Environmental Stewardship: Preserving the environment is of utmost importance to us. We strive to minimise our carbon footprint and promote sustainability in all aspects of our operations. This includes:
Energy Efficiency: We implement energy-efficient practices within our offices and encourage the use of renewable energy sources. By optimising our energy consumption, we aim to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
Waste Management: We are committed to responsible waste management practices, including recycling, reducing paper usage, and proper disposal of electronic equipment. Our aim is to minimise the impact of our operations on landfills and promote a circular economy.
Conservation: We support environmental conservation initiatives and actively participate in programs that protect natural resources, such as water and biodiversity. We promote awareness of environmental issues among our employees and clients.
Social Responsibility: As a law firm deeply ingrained in our communities, we recognise the importance of social responsibility. We strive to make a positive impact by:
Diversity and Inclusion: We foster an inclusive work environment that values diversity and equality. We believe that a diverse team brings forth a broader range of perspectives and enhances our ability to serve our clients effectively.
Pro Bono Work: We are dedicated to providing legal assistance to individuals and organisations who may not have the means to access legal services. Through pro bono work, we contribute to a fair and just society.
Community Engagement: We actively engage with our local communities through volunteering, sponsorships, and partnerships. By supporting charitable organisations and community initiatives, we aim to address societal challenges and promote well-being.
Sponsorship: We recognise the influence of social and cultural events, such as music, theatre, and art, in shaping communities. We therefore sponsor such events to contribute to their development.
Governance and Ethics: Maintaining the highest standards of governance and ethics is a fundamental principle at Kourtellos & Co. We are committed to:
Compliance: We adhere to the applicable laws, regulations, and professional standards. Our commitment to compliance ensures the integrity of our operations and the confidentiality of our clients' information.
Transparency: We maintain transparent communication with our clients, employees, and stakeholders. By providing clear and accurate information, we build trust and foster long-term relationships.
Ethical Conduct: We uphold a culture of ethical behavior, promoting honesty, integrity, and professionalism in everything we do. We prioritise the best interests of our clients while maintaining the highest ethical standards.
Our ESG policy is an integral part of our commitment to sustainable growth and responsible business practices. Implementation is key to the success of any policy. We conduct regular reviews of our governance and operations to ensure compliance with best practices in transparency and accountability, and improve our policies and procedures to align with evolving global standards. By integrating ESG considerations into our daily operations, we aim to create long-term value for our clients, employees, shareholders, and the wider society.
Upholding honesty and integrity in all matters supports a positive workplace environment and contributes to society at large. Our ethics and integrity are vital in preserving our firm's culture, initiatives, and principles, acting as a cornerstone for our continued success.
