Commitment to CSR

Since 2000, Allen & Overy has embarked on the "Values into Action" program, to identify and foster the values that are important to us as a firm. One of the core values identified is "Respecting and including every individual". This includes embracing diversity and encouraging and supporting people to play a part in their wider community.

The firm has a positive commitment to the promotion of a policy of equal opportunity for all current and prospective employees and partners. This is supported by the adoption and implementation of equal opportunity policies in selection, recruitment and promotion at all levels of the firm (including clear policies against harassment).

Additionally, Allen & Overy is committed to helping the communities in which we operate. Our Pro Bono Community Affairs Program is an important part of who we are as a firm and the values we espouse. The broad range of initiatives we support is testimony to this.

Currently, the Hong Kong office supports a variety of community projects and schemes, partnering with various social sectors. We are currently supporting several charities on an ongoing basis. These include Helpers For Domestic Helpers (Social & Economic), Enlighten (Health), St. Mary's Home for the Aged (Elderly) and Hans Andersen Club (Children).

Worldwide, over the last year, pro bono work was undertaken in 21 of Allen & Overy's offices, with volunteers completing 48,000 hours of service, equivalent to GBP10.8m in billable time.
