Castrén & Snellman Continues Development of Corporate Responsibility Expertise through Lecture Series on Sustainable Success Stories

Responsibility has become an integral part of business and impact has become a driver of success. Castrén & Snellman launched a new lecture series to foster responsibility expertise and promote sustainable choices on Global Zero Emissions Day on 21 September.

Castrén & Snellman is a corporate responsibility forerunner in the legal services industry, being the first law firm accepted in the WWF’s Green Office network, among other things. Responsible business is a goal that unites us and our clients and one that we have invested a great deal in. We regularly advise our clients in adopting corporate responsibility and compliance programmes and we are a member of the FIBS corporate responsibility network. We joined Finland’s Sustainable Investment Forum FINSIF as the first law firm in 2015. The following year we also joined the Climate Leadership Council (CLC).

By investing in the development of corporate responsibility matters, Castrén & Snellman intends to maintain its position as a strategic adviser to its clients and an advocate of sustainable success stories. Our Sustainable Success Stories lecture series builds on our strong foundation of corporate responsibility expertise and will train our own experts in the subjects of corporate responsibility and impact.

The first lecture, From Responsibility to Impact, was held on the eve of Zero Emissions Day. The speakers at the inaugural lecture were Annu Nieminen from The Upright Project and Valio’s General Counsel Saara Vahvaselkä. The lecture series will continue over the autumn of 2019 and will cover subjects such as the ABCs of corporate responsibility, the fundamentals of responsible investment and the importance of human rights in business.
