De Berti Jacchia Franchini Forlani, Interlaw’s partner firm in Italy, has become the first firm in the country to join the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The GRI is a non-profit organisation that provides support for the reporting of sustainable performance to organisers of activities, companies, and institutions of any size, anywhere in the world.

“We are proud to be the first Italian Law Firm to join the GRI,” Roberto A. Jacchia, Senior Partner of the firm, comments. “Being part of the organisation that has defined the most widely used and authoritative international reporting standards will allow us to deepen our knowledge of best practices in sustainability. As a result, we will be part of the community and active participant in the sustainability standards-setting landscape.”

De Berti has also established a dedicated team of lawyers and chartered accountants to ensure internal decision-making and management processes are increasingly sustainable, while also focusing on updating skills across the firm. The firm will also provide assistance to companies that intend to transform or set up as ‘benefit companies’, drawing on its expertise in areas such as legal compliance, due diligence and corporate governance.
