Norton Rose Fulbright
Between 2013 and 2015, we sent STS Lord Nelson on a global circumnavigation, visiting over 30 countries and every continent in the world (including Antarctica). We collaborated with a number of charitable partners in each country to recruit young adults with disabilities to be part of our crew and to also showcase issues of common interest. Over 2,000 individuals participated across this two year period.
The Challenge has been an exceptional opportunity to engage our people, clients and communities with a hugely ambitious project. This was the first time we have adopted a CSR cause across all our principal geographic regions. Supporting a project like this is an act of imagination and required significant effort to secure engagement and see it through. The 2012 Paralympic Games brought disabled achievement into sharp focus. This was joined-up CSR activity, at a worldwide level, leveraging the global resources and capabilities of Norton Rose Fulbright, and involving partners, staff, clients and our communities.
