Sustainability and Diversity


Sustainability is a key social issue. Success in business can no longer be seen as success if it deprives future generations of their livelihood. That’s why we are active in the search for practical solutions to conserve resources and develop alternatives.

In 2022 Flick Gocke Schaumburg signed up to the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative. This commits us to take action in support of achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Progress on respecting human rights, improving labor standards, protecting the environment and fighting corruption is in everyone’s interest. We base our business activities on these principles. Starting in 2023, we will publish an annual progress report to explain publicly what we’re doing and what we still need to do. The reports and other measures will be coordinated by our sustainability team, which comprises members from all professional groups across all our offices.


Flick Gocke Schaumburg 2022 is a signatory to the German Diversity Charter. We see the equal treatment of all people regardless of their gender, age, ethnic origin, religion or sexual orientation as an ethical obligation. And our clear commitment to valuing diversity is also an opportunity for our firm. That’s why we strive to keep improving on equal opportunities and diversity – for all our employees.
