• CSR

At Ploum, we want to have a positive impact on our people, our society, the environment and the market.

People

Since a positive and healthy working environment is of the utmost importance to our people’s success, we foster a corporate culture with plenty of scope for personal development, and we also encourage initiatives for sports events with our colleagues. And we support various charities as well, such as the CARE London to Paris Cycle Challenge and CARE Walk In Her Shoes charity walk.

Society

We are happy to share our knowledge and experience with the public by supporting various charities and projects for local communities. In addition, we introduce young people to the legal profession and give courses on law at FutureForLife, IMC Weekend School’s programme for alumni.

We are also one of the four partners at CityLab010, and we will be providing legal assistance to this innovative Rotterdam workshop during the coming months.

We are one of the partners at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and the Kunsthal.

Environment

All paper that we use is FSC certified, and it goes without saying that energy-saving appliances and digital communications are established concepts at our office.

Moreover, we have always been in favour of carpooling and we do not have any expensive lease vehicles. And we have an EV charging station behind our office where our visitors and staff can recharge their electric or hybrid car.

Market

Corporate Social Responsibility means that we too have a part to play in the chain. The standards we ourselves maintain, serve as an example to our suppliers. For this reason, at least 50% of the catering in our office restaurant is organic, our office supplies are purchased in an environmentally friendly way as far as possible, our website hosts are green, and our cleaning service team uses biological detergents.
