Bae, Kim & Lee will offer a year of free legal advice to ‘Backpackers Planet’, a Korean camping/backpacking company that promotes eco-friendly and sustainable tourism.
Chandler MHM will help a rural school plant an orchard/garden to supplement its lunch program. Students will be able to take home excess food.

ENSafrica: Lawyers and professionals will be planting trees and cleaning up their communities.

Formosa Transnational will host two forums in Taipei focusing on issues related to corporate duties and CSR responsibilities.

The firm will get data reports on its Co2 emissions reduction and total waste recycled. The program will be launched with a two-hour workshop for volunteer firm ambassadors.
Hunton Andrews Kurth (Texas - USA) will host an electronics recycling activity. For those not going to the office due to the pandemic, the firm will share information on electronics recycling locations in the community.

Sorainen (the Baltics) is discouraging firm employees from using cars that week and organizing a nutrition workshop about eco-friendly products and food producers.

Sołtysiński Kawecki & Szlęzak employees will be encouraged to walk to work instead of drive. The fifty employees with the highest scores will receive office plants to improve indoor air quality.
