Community

Hunt & Hunt places a strong emphasis on giving back to our community through a variety of initiatives.

We believe it's our responsibility to minimise our environmental impact, and to give our time and skills to benefit the communities in which we work.

Sustainable practices in everything we do

Hunt & Hunt is a proud member of the Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA) – an industry-led association that promotes sustainable practices within the legal sector. As a member of AusLSA, we:

  • measure, manage and reduce our environmental impact
  • work with external stakeholders to reduce our indirect environmental impact
  • promote awareness of sustainability across our business
  • participate in public debate on sustainability to develop, apply and promote best practice across the legal sector
  • report on our progress.

We report annually on our environmental policies and achievements using the AusLSA environmental consumption calculator. This measures greenhouse gas emissions, electricity, business travel data, paper, water and waste, and carbon-mitigating activities.

Clean Up Australia

An integral part of our environmental strategy is our support of Clean Up Australia – a national not-for-profit organisation that works with communities to conserve our environment. We have been providing pro bono commercial legal advice to Clean Up Australia since 1988.

Helping those who need it most

Pro bono work is a vital part of our firm's culture. Hunt & Hunt encourages and supports its people to use their skills to help those who have limited resources, or who can't access legal assistance when they need it.

Hunt & Hunt provides pro bono services to a number of charities. Our recent pro bono work includes acting for disability discrimination complainants, participating in ethics review committees for health organisations, and sitting on boards for not-for-profit organisations.

We are also signatories to the National Pro Bono Target, an initiative of the Australian Pro Bono Centre. The Australian Pro Bono Centre is an independent centre of expertise that aims to grow the capacity of the Australian legal profession to provide pro bono legal services that are focused on increasing access to justice for socially disadvantaged and/or marginalised persons, and furthering the public interest.
