Wynne Law Firm's office is located in the Drakes Landing office complex in Greenbrae, California, near the Larkspur Landing ferry terminal and Highway 101 at the Sir Francis Drake Blvd. exit. After working at Righetti Wynne for the past 13 years, Edward J. Wynne decided to open his own office.

Wynne Law Firm will continue to represent plaintiffs in federal and state courts throughout the nation in cases involving violations of state and federal law such as unlawful employment practices, employment discrimination and unfair business practices.

Attorneys at Wynne Law Firm are well known in their area of expertise and have reputations for professional integrity, vigorous advocacy and remarkable achievements. Our expertise extends to both trial and appellate advocacy. They possess the specialized legal skills and the financial resources necessary for prosecuting large, complex cases. They take great pride in our responsible and innovative approach to the practice of law.

Many of the cases start as the result of a complaint by one or a handful of persons. If you believe you have been harmed by an unlawful employment practice, a fraud or a deceptive or unlawful business practice, contact Wynne Law Firm for help.

DOW JONES SUSTAINABILITY INDEXES

 

The Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes, a series of stock market indexes for companies which have adopted Sustainable Development (SD) strategies, provides some useful guidance on what it means for a large company to implement SD. Companies are evaluated for the indexes on three dimensions:
- Economic such as codes of conduct, corporate governance, financial robustness, and integration of sustainability in investor relations;

- Environmental such as environmental policy/management, eco-efficiency, and carbon intensity of product portfolio;

- Social such as human capital development, stakeholder engagement, labor practice indicators, and emerging markets/global sourcing.

One third of the points on which a company is assessed are given for each of these three dimensions, but sector specific criteria within the dimensions account for about 40% while 60% are general criteria that apply to all industries.

They are popular amongst people in the financial services sector who have an interest in Sustainable Development. But they are based to a significant extent on company self-reporting rather than on independent review of SD performance.

They include the large corporations whose SD practices are already well known to most SD experts, but do little to encourage companies that are not yet practicing SD to adopt SD practices. They do establish a practical SD benchmark that is useful in demonstrating the application of SD tools.
