At McInnes Cooper, we believe our CSR Program should engage all of our members and reflect the issues that are meaningful to them. That is why we call it our Collective Social Responsibility Program.
We’ve dedicated a facebook page to our CSR activities. Like us, and see updates on our team’s community involvement.
At McInnes Cooper, we believe we have a responsibility to make a positive and meaningful contribution to the communities in which we live and work. We are committed to fulfilling our social responsibility through our Collective Social Responsibility Program, a firm-wide initiative that is built upon the following three pillars:
Both locally and globally, we are committed to empowering our communities to become better through investments of time and resources.
Team members from throughout our seven offices regularly sponsor and engage in programs and individuals, helping them to reach important fundraising targets. We regularly participate in a number of volunteer activities and serve on boards focused on the betterment of our communities. At the local level, we support firm members who give back with programs like the McInnes Cooper Volunteer Support Program. We also have built strategic partnerships with global organizations, including the Red Cross, that help our neighbours around the world in times of crisis.
Through these relationships, we learn not only how we have so much to offer as a team, but also how much more we have to gain. We meet new people, realize new skills, experience new cultures and learn about the power of giving and engaging.
As a large business, we understand that our operations have an impact on the environment. As such, we strive to make daily changes, both large and small, to the ways in which we live and work. We believe our specific efforts to reduce paper consumption and travel-related carbon emissions will help reduce our environmental footprint and create a culture of sustainable practices at McInnes Cooper.
We are a community of professionals with a unique ability to provide the legal services that many cannot afford. We believe we have a responsibility to use our skills to benefit our communities, and we encourage our members to provide services on a pro bono basis with a focus on matters of public interest and on behalf of disadvantaged people and groups.
