Hogan Lovells Publishes First Annual Citizenship Report
18 July 2011
LONDON, 18 JULY 2011 - International legal practice Hogan Lovells has today published its first annual Citizenship Report 2010. The report brings together activity highlights from throughout 2010 which demonstrate Hogan Lovells' commitment to good citizenship and corporate responsibility.
Good Citizenship is one of Hogan Lovells' core values which underpins its business practices. A Citizenship Panel comprised of senior partners and managers representing all the regions in which Hogan Lovells operates supports and encourages five Citizenship programs: pro bono, diversity, environment, Touch (matched charitable giving), and community investment.
The report features selections of Hogan Lovells' work worldwide, showing how it works with local communities and global organizations to influence change through pro bono work and community investment.
Examples of Citizenship work for 2010 include:
• providing significant pro bono support for the reconstruction of Haiti, ongoing assistance for the victims of the July 7 London bombings, legal support for economic development initiatives in Liberia, and help to social entrepreneurs across the globe;
• establishing a pilot mentoring scheme to foster the professional and personal development of women within Hogan Lovells;
• fundraising events in support of international charity of the year ORBIS, funding 2,400 cataracts operations since 1 May 2010;
• achieving a 30% reduction in London office energy consumption; use of recycled heat in German offices; ensuring office products purchased in the U.S. meet minimum recycling standards; and
• providing mentoring and community support to schools and outreach programs in the U.S., U.K. and Asia.
Worldwide, more than 122,000 hours were devoted to pro bono activity by Hogan Lovells.
