Corporate responsibility: how we support our community, people and planet
At Peters & Peters we live our lives upholding justice – not just for our clients but for our communities, our people and the future inhabitants of our planet.
Our community initiatives deliver opportunities and support for disadvantaged people, often near to where we live and work, through practical activity and partnering with charities. Our pro bono scheme helps victims of injustice around the world with free top-quality legal advice. We know many people face deep-seated injustices because of age, race, sex and disability, as well as more hidden differences like background, belief, mental health and sexual orientation. Our diversity and inclusion programme works hard to identify and challenge all instances of exclusion and discrimination: in our hiring, our working systems and the way we treat one another.
And what use justice today if all we have worked for – for our clients, communities, colleagues and families – is threatened by man-made climate change in the decades to come? Our environmental campaigns – driven by our active Green Team – work to minimise our harmful emissions whilst acting to promote biodiversity and a sustainable future.
