Foley Hoag’s unique Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practice was launched in 2000 and provides counsel to multinational companies, governments, and multilateral institutions regarding social, political, and environmental challenges.
Our advice to clients encompasses legal and reputational risk management with respect to human rights, including labor rights and the rights of indigenous peoples; the design and implementation of stakeholder engagement programs; and professional auditing services, ranging from due diligence desk-top analyses to on-the-ground human rights impact assessments and the monitoring of social, human rights, and environmental initiatives.
In addition, we provide clients with crisis management and mediation services with respect to disputes with impacted communities and stakeholder groups, ranging from indigenous peoples to non-governmental organizations (“NGOs.”)
At www.csrandthelaw.com we want to inform, update, comment, and discuss. In other words, while we enjoy posting, we’ll enjoy the blog more – and its usefulness will increase – if we hear from you also. Please comment on the blog entries. Let us know about developments we missed or implications of our discussions that we did not consider.
We look forward to the conversation.
