Burges Salmon has been shortlisted for CSR Firm of the Year at the forthcoming Bristol Law Society Awards 2016, which are taking place at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre on Thursday 13 October 2016.

The Bristol Law Society CSR Firm of the Year accolade is awarded to a firm who has shown notable commitment to supporting causes or projects in the region.

Burges Salmon’s CR programme is an intrinsic part of its business. Its focus is on identifying activities where our people can make a real difference in our local community.

The firm’s CR objectives are to:

  • build sustainable relationships
  • use the skills and expertise of our people to support the local community
  • reduce the impact of our activities on the environment
  • maintain a diverse workforce.

By collaborating with a range of organisations, including primary and secondary schools, Burges Salmon builds relationships that have a lasting impact across three main areas: education, community and environment.

To highlight this, the firm focused its submission on two projects: Bright Sparks and My Wild Street.

Burges Salmon’s CR Manager, Catherine Correia, said: “Thanks to our volunteering policy, we have seen engagement figures rise to 56% across the firm. We pride ourselves on this success and giving our people opportunities to use their skills as well as their time to help others locally. We are therefore extremely pleased to have been recognised with this shortlisting.”
