In 2019, Thommessen became part of the UN Global Compact - a global network for businesses committed to social responsibility and promoting responsible and sustainable business practices. As part of this collaboration, we report annually on our sustainability work and our goals.

At Thommessen, we are committed to being a "real team in everything we do". This is why sustainable development goal number 17 – partnerships for the goals – is crucial for us. We need interdisciplinary collaboration to meet the sustainable development goals. We have therefore joined networks such as the UN Global Compact, Katapult Ocean and Klimapartnere Rogaland. However, our most important contribution is probably the one we make when advising our clients. We believe that we can help create long-term value for our clients by integrating sustainability into our legal advice across all industries and disciplines, while at the same time contributing to sustainable development.
We have three values which are important to us, and which guide our culture and how we run the firm. The first value is reliable, which is about the kind of people we are. The second value is dedicated, which is about how we interact with other people. Last, but not least, is curious, which is about how we respond to change. Our sustainability report provides you with an overview of how we pursue sustainability, structured under these values. We share our achievements over the last year, as well as the goals that shall help us achieve even more. Our focus is on the UN Global Compact’s ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Our approach to sustainability
At Thommessen, we seek, together with our clients, to facilitate the development and adoption of sustainable and climate-friendly solutions.
