Corporate Social Responsibility

Through our advocacy Arntzen de Besche seeks balanced solutions that benefit people, the environment and society. We are engaged in a variety of activities that help protect and develop the world we live in.

Our strategy and business are based on our four values: teamwork, quality, integrity and commitment. Through our values we support and contribute to social development through various activities.

Within the field of corporte social responsibility, our main partner is Sykehusklovnene, The European Federation of Hospital Clown Organizations, to which we provide financial support and pro-bono legal services. Sykehusklovnene's aim is that "All children admitted to hospitals will receive visits from hospital clowns", and they provide positive experiences and a breathing space for children and youngsters in an otherwise difficult period in their lives. 

In 2013, Arntzen de Besche became an Eco-Lighthouse business. We have implemented an environmental policy, which involves systematic measures for our day-to-day business activities. 

Arntzen de Besche is the only Norwegian law firm (as of May 2017) approved by the UN Global Compact initiative, which means we support the initiative’s ten principles. The initiative encourages businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. More than 8,000 businesses from 145 countries support the initiative. 

As part of our CSR efforts, we work pro bono in situations / cases where it is believed that people or organizations have been the victims of injustice.

We regularly arrange exam preparation lectures for law students at the Universityof Oslo, Bergen and Tromsø.

For many years, our lawyers have held honorary posts and participated actively in non-profits, foundations and law committees.

Knud Jacob Knudsen is appointed as CSR responsible partner at Arntzen de Besche.
