For the 17th year running, we have published our annual report on the firm’s impact from an environmental, social and governance perspective, relating to 2022. This year’s report, known as the Sustainability Report, merges the traditional Integrated Report and the Non-Financial Information Statement (required by current corporate legislation) into a single document.
The new Garrigues Sustainability Report has taken into account the most recent GRI Standards in force (including the 2021 GRI 1, GRI 2 and GRI 3 standards) and has been verified by an independent auditor. For the first time, the report includes key factors and metrics such as the four pillars of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and content from the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), which will be applicable from January 1, 2024.
We are committed to informing about our policies, objectives and progress in terms of sustainability, and to maintain contact with our stakeholders to continue improving performance in this area.
Seventeen years ago we began to publish our sustainability report annually in a pioneering attempt to transfer this commitment to our environment in detail. We were also pioneers in the legal sector in preparing an integrated report, in using the G4 version of GRI and in using the GRI Standards.
