We want lawyers who prominently fight for human rights, involved against the injustices of the world
Our social responsibility strategy is inspired by the ethical principles of the profession, as well as the legacy and values passed on by the Firm's founders, Ignacio Gómez-Acebo and Fernando Pombo.
In 2010, Gómez-Acebo & Pombo and Fernando Pombo himself decided to establish the Fernando Pombo Foundation with the aim of promoting the social responsibility of the legal profession. Through the Foundation we direct our main social responsibility actions and get involved in initiatives for the promotion of the rule of law, human rights and social justice.
The Firm has a Social Responsibility Action Plan 2020-2021, which is currently under review to define our strategy and commitment to ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) in the coming years.
In order to meet the provisions of Law 11/2018, which amends the Commercial Code, the revised text of the Capital Companies Act approved by Royal Legislative Decree 1/2010, of 2 July, and Law 22/2015, of 20 July, on Auditing of Accounts, in terms of non-financial information and diversity, the Firm makes publicly available its Statement of non-financial information for the financial year 2021. This report has been prepared in accordance with our ESG commitments and following, among others, the GRI standards and the ten principles of the United Nations Global Compact.
Over the years, the Firm has created various committees to promote and coordinate actions in these areas. The Environment, Equality, Disability, LGBTI and Generational Diversity Committees are currently active.
