Aequo is proud to join the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest global corporate responsibility initiative advancing universal values in business operations, with over 9,800 companies based in over 160 countries. Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact brings companies together with UN agencies, labour organisations and civil society to support 10 principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

By incorporating the Global Compact principles into strategies, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, Aequo has already gained international recognition for its CSR initiatives.

Denis Lysenko, Managing Partner, commented: “We are delighted to become a participant to the UN Global Compact. Joining reinforces Aequo’s commitment to sustainable development and rule of law, which are at the heart of our vision, mission and strategic objectives. We are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of our culture and day-to-day operations of our law firm, and to engaging in collaborative projects which advance the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”.

“At Aequo, we strive to enhance our business practices in line with the Compact. We aim to understand our clients’ needs, deliver the highest quality and exceed their expectations, which is possible only by sharing the same values and aspiration to use our strength as a leading Ukrainian law firm to make a positive contribution to our business community and society at large”, commented Anna Babych, Partner.
