As part of the first network-wide Corporate Social Responsibility initiative called WLG ׀ impact organized by the World Law Group, a network of 61 leading independent law firms with more than 400 offices in major commercial centers worldwide to which our Firm belongs, we decided to work with a local association called Nettoyons Lyon (literally Let's clean up Lyon) whose purpose is to organize actions to collect, retrieve, recover and recycle abandoned waste in public or natural spaces, as well as communication and awareness actions on eco-citizen behaviors.
On October 8, 2021, part of our team joined up three members of the association at a spot by the Rhône River near our Lyon office.
After a 30-minute brief on how the different types of waste we all produce impact the environment, we received safety instructions and then got to work, under the supervision and with the help of Alexandra, Nicolas and Emmanuel, the three members of the association.
Our objective was to remove underwater waste and polluting objects using big neodymium magnets and grapples!
Not an easy job... but we did our best and had a great time all together doing something for our planet.
It was a great and enriching experience and we are really proud to be part of an organization, the World Law Group, that is working together for what matters.
