Corporate social responsibility
Policy brief & purpose
Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) company policy refers to our responsibility towards the environment. Our Company is part of a system of people, values, partnerships with other organizations, and with our planet. It is socially responsible to ensure that our Company manages all of these resources wisely and dutifully.
This policy applies to our Company and its affiliates. It may also refer to suppliers and other partners.
We strive to be a responsible business that meets high standards of ethics and professionalism.
Our Company’s social responsibility falls under two categories: compliance and proactiveness. Compliance refers to our Company’s commitment to observing community values. Proactiveness is taken by constantly reviewing ways to promote human rights, help communities, and protect the planet.
- Respect the law
- Ensure that all business operations are legally operated
- Maintain open and honest relationships with all of our partners
We will always conduct business with integrity and respect for human rights. We will promote:
- Safety and fair dealing
- Respect toward the student/consumer
- Anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices
Examples of Corporate Social Responsibility
Protecting the environment:
The BARBRI Group recognizes the need to preserve our planet. Managing our planet’s natural resources is beneficial for us all. Our Company aims to minimize the materials used in making our printed materials by reviewing printed course material needs on an annual basis. Over the past several years, we have specifically reduced the paperweight used in our course materials, as well as the size of the paper and book covers. In doing this, we have saved well over 1 million pounds of paper, resulting in the preservation of many of the planet’s precious resources.
Additionally, our employees follow best practices when disposing of garbage, recycling most of the paper used in our offices, as well as the thousands of printed course materials that are returned to us by our students.
We ensure that we:
- Don’t risk the health and safety of our employees or community.
- Support diversity and inclusion.
The BARBRI Group is dedicated to improving the lives of people by providing life-changing, high-quality professional instruction and certification to students worldwide. We firmly believe that knowledge transforms everyone everywhere.
We are a committed equal opportunity employer and abide by all fair labor practices. We will ensure that our activities do not directly or indirectly violate human rights in any country (e.g., forced labor, child labor, etc.). We review the policies of our partners and vendors to ensure they are also in compliance with all local, state, or federal laws concerning human rights.
Donations and Learning
Our Company commits to make monetary donations that aim to:
- Advance the ability for people to obtain life-advancing education opportunities.
- Alleviate the financial burdens of students in need.
- Volunteer to help people in need.
The BARBRI Group annually sponsors students and professionals aiming to work in Public Interest fields by offering thousands of dollars of scholarships for our legal education courses and certificates, law school tuition grants, and public interest legal employment.
Our Company also encourages employees to volunteer in their communities by providing three days of paid leave annually per employee.
Preserving the environment
The BARBRI Group actively promotes the conservation of the planet through the use of technology, expanding student interest into the public interest sectors, as well as through the observation of environmentally-friendly practices in the business communities where we reside.
The Company understands its responsibility to operate a strong corporate social responsibility policy. We expect to be held accountable by our communities, employees, and all business partners around the globe through the practices discussed in this policy, and we commit to continue to evolve on this critical path.
