Rutgers & Posch has a strong drive to help make society better. We give shape to this in various ways, by doing what we do best. We remove legal obstacles to allow others to do what they do best: improving society in one way or another. Rutgers & Posch supports various organisations, including the Pro Bono Club, the Refugee Company and the Dutch National Opera & Ballet, by providing legal advice. The firm also frequently hires A Beautiful Mess to cater its lunches.
Pro Bono club
In 2016, Rutgers & Posch teamed up with several likeminded legal professionals to set up the Pro Bono Club: a platform that brings together passionate lawyers and social organisations.
The Refugee Company helps to create an inclusive society, by helping refugees to find their economic independence and rebuild a meaningful life.
A Beautiful Mess
A Beautiful Mess helps to improve inclusiveness in society by connecting with as many people as possible in its restaurant and coffee bar, and sharing a positive experience of refugees in society.
We are aware of our legacy, in every sense of the word. That is why we do our best to minimise the traces that we leave behind for future generations to deal with. We reduce our emissions where we can. What we cannot reduce – emissions that are generally unavoidable – we compensate by means of the carefully chosen programme Treesforall.
Rutgers & Posch respects the internationally recognized human rights as described in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. We explicitly expect our employees, suppliers and business partners to respect these rights as well. Both within their own organisation as well as in their direct stakeholder network.
