Corporate Citizenship at Hannes Snellman in 2020

21 December 2020

Our people are strongly involved in all our corporate citizenship and pro bono initiatives. One of our traditions is to make annual donations to charities that share our values.

In 2020, we will be supporting our long-term cooperation partner UNICEF in their two-year project “Justice for Children” in Rwanda in Central Africa, where UNICEF is working closely with the Government of Rwanda in implementing the government's significant investments in the strengthening of the national child protection system, with critical policies, laws, and services. In addition, we are supporting John Nurminen Foundation, Helsinki Mission, and Stockholms Stadsmission. All chosen causes reflect the UN Sustainable Development Goals we have identified as top priorities at Hannes Snellman: Reduce Inequalities; Climate Action; and Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.

We also continued our strong tradition of handling pro bono assignments throughout the year. In addition, we acted as fundraisers in Red Cross’s Hunger Day campaign and participated in Ketjureaktio cycling charity event, collected material donations for HOPE, supported Pink Ribbon campaign through our events, cooperated with Venner to support disadvantaged families with food boxes, and arranged the Finnish “Joulupuu” charity campaign in cooperation with our staff and law students.

We have a firm belief that by serving the public good, we translate our values into action.
