Corporate social responsibility is of paramount importance at Houthoff. Needless to say, we employ sustainable business practices and are involved in numerous social organisations and projects.
We pursue our goal of sustainability with the same dedication to excellence that we apply in everything we do. We constantly strive to make our operations more sustainable. We take part in different initiatives, such as the Green Business Club (GBC) Zuidas and Rotterdam Centrum. In addition, we are involved in drawing up the Zuidas Statement of Ambition 2021-2025 and we are one of the many parties to put our name to it.
Our commitment to social responsibility is demonstrated by the considerable value we place on doing pro bono work for organisations and people that pursue or support the public interest. Houthoff is a co-founder of Pro Bono Connect, a platform that links NGOs with law firms, and allows them to work together on pro bono cases. We regularly take on cases through Pro Bono Connect. Houthoff’s Lex Mundi membership also means that it is closely connected with the Lex Mundi Pro Bono Foundation (“LMPBF“). LMPBF gives social entrepreneurs around the world the opportunity to obtain pro bono legal advice from one or more of the 160 Lex Mundi firms.
Since January 2018, Houthoff has proudly been the main sponsor of Dutch National Opera & Ballet. Together we have created many special initiatives and events that have bridged the cultural and legal world. Both our ambitions and characteristics connect seamlessly. The passion for the profession and the desire to provide excellence and to stimulate innovation are the greatest common denominators.
