Wistrand Sustainability

We strive for a long-term profitable business with a good balance between financial, environmental, and social responsibility. Wistrand’s sustainability work aims to achieve a good balance between these three aspects of our responsibility.

Financial responsibility

We shall generate sustainable profit and secure our financial position both in the short and long term, in balance with our environmental and social responsibility.

Environmental responsibility

We shall take responsibility for operating a business that does not affect our natural resources in a negative way in the long-term.

Social responsibility

We shall take responsibility for operating a business that considers the health and well-being of humans by contributing to a well-functioning society.

We have identified six areas that we focus our sustainability work on. These focus areas are:

Fair business practices

Good business practices ensure we act in an ethical and sustainable manner in our interactions with the outside world. This includes relationships with actors we meet within the scope of our matters (e.g. clients, counterparties, courts and other authorities) but also other actors in our environment (e.g. the Swedish Bar Association, suppliers and competitors). This area includes legal ethics, anti-corruption work, actions against money-laundering and promotion of social responsibility in the value chain.

Diversity and inclusion

All those who are part of a society – regardless of skin color, age, religion, sexuality, gender identity, physical and mental functions, financial conditions, cultural descent and ethnicity – shall have the same opportunities and rights. Wistrand’s work with diversity and inclusion is mainly about taking advantage of many different experiences and knowledge within the scope of our work. A good composition of people with various experiences increases both the efficiency and the quality in the business.

Working conditions

Wistrand’s commitment within this area means continuously striving to create guidelines and work practices related to work within or upon assignment by Wistrand that brings about good working relationships. The work concerns,

among other things, occupation and employment conditions, working conditions and social security, work environment and dialogue with representatives for employee and employers’ organizations.

Community commitment and development

We are a part of the society in which we operate. It is only natural for us to strive to contribute our knowledge and experiences in various projects advantageous to society. Wistrand encourages its colleagues to commit to such projects and with the help from its existing connections assume a social responsibility. Exchange with other actors is valuable as it helps them and us to learn and grow. The focus area includes community commitment to education and culture, health, development of and access to technology and social investments.


Our environmental work includes working for a sustainable employment of resources and striving to prevent negative environmental impact.

Human rights

The recognition of, and respect for, human rights is critical for the principles of the rule of law and is the basis for the most important institutions in society, such as the legal system. Our goal is that our business operations shall be permeated by the respect for human rights and freedoms. Respect for these is a prerequisite for sustainability work within all of our focus areas.
