In November 2010, CPBO announced a milestone – the first 100 signatories to the Corporate Pro Bono Challenge® initiative.
The rising trend in corporate social responsibility has had a significant impact on major corporations, in the U.S. and worldwide. The CPBO Challenge® gives in-house legal departments the opportunity to build on existing CSR programs, while enabling in-house attorneys to use their unique and vitally important skill set for the greater good.
The Corporate Pro Bono Challenge® 100 signatories are the pioneers in the move toward greater corporate social responsibility.
The CPBO Challenge® 100 achievement honors the leadership and commitment of the companies that have signed on to the CPBO Challenge® statement and seeks to increase momentum and pro bono culture within the corporate community. It is an important first step toward making pro bono an integral part of the culture at all in-house legal departments.
