Aequo signed the UN Global Compact Ukraine Memorandum on Joint Anti-Corruption Actions in Ukraine during the Anti-Corruption Week, December 5-9, 2022. The initiative aims to strengthen accountability, compliance, and transparency of business in conditions of uncertainty and facilitate speedy recovery of Ukraine’s war-raged economy after the victory.
“As a committed participant of the UN Global Compact and an ESG-pioneering law firm, we are proud to be among responsible and sustainable businesses promoting transparency, compliance risk management in our daily operational practices and policies, raising awareness of corruption consequences. It is of utmost importance for stakeholders to act responsibly, advancing to Ukraine’s victory in this war”, added Anna Babych, Aequo's Executive Partner.
In 2018, Aequo became the first national law firm to join the UN Global Compact as a participant.
