Responsible Business

At DWF our purpose is clear – to deliver positive outcomes with our colleagues, clients and communities. As a global legal business we must act responsibly, how we do business is just as important as what we do.

Sustainability is at the core of our purpose and is embedded throughout our strategy. We strive to create long term sustainable value by doing the right thing and mobilising our collective strength and strategic commitments as a force for good in society and for the environment.

There are two ways we achieve this with our business activities – as an enabler, supporting our clients with the ESG business challenges they face and as an exemplar, by communicating on our progress as a responsible business transparently and authentically.
