This is the first edition of the Trench Rossi Watanabe Corporate Social Responsibility Report. Here, we present the main advances and results in the environmental, social and governance spheres from January 1 to December 31, 2021. For some specific indicators, data were compiled based on the fiscal year (from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021). When this is the case, there is an explanatory note attached to the chart or graph.
In terms of scope, this report contains consolidated information on the four offices of the Firm, located in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília and Porto Alegre.
This report presents content based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards for sustainability reporting.
It is with great joy that we share this first edition of the Trench Rossi Watanabe Corporate Social Responsibility Report. Socio-environmental issues have been a priority in our firm since the beginning of our activities in 1959.
Trench Rossi Watanabe Management Committee
Jose Roberto Martins
Founded in 1959, we are a law firm offering services in all areas of law. We work in a transversal and integrated way, bringing together the best skills, knowledge and capabilities of the different practice groups. Our goal is to meet customer expectations, acting as a facilitating company and offering the best result, so that customers can manage their business in an ethical and simplified way.
A solid governance structure, with well-defined roles and responsibilities, ensures agility, control and transparency in decision-making. Consequently, it reduces operational risks and noise between areas and processes.
Having clarity on what our priorities will be and the paths we will follow to achieve our vision is a key factor for the long-term sustainability of our Firm. Therefore, we carry out the Strategic Planning annually, which is effective throughout the fiscal year (July to June of the following year).
Care for the environment has always been present in the Firm’s daily routine, as it was borne from the commitment of the partners themselves to this cause. At the beginning of 2016, with the expansion of the theme to all our branches, we strengthened the Environmental Responsibility Committee, which is responsible for planning, structuring, executing and raising awareness about environmental actions.
The Firm’s financial management is structured to ensure the diligence and accuracy of accounting books and records. Periodic audits are also carried out to ensure that we are in compliance with tax, corporate and accounting rules. In this way, we ensure financial sustainability and our compliance and credibility with the government, regulatory bodies and clients.
