We believe that we have a responsibility to help create a sustainable future and make our world a better place. We look to exhibit responsible behaviour in everything we do, as well as engaging with our stakeholders to have a positive impact in the places where we live and work.
We’ve refreshed our sustainability strategy this year (see framework below). This supports our vision to do the right thing for our clients, our people, our communities and the environment and it complements our sustainability materiality matrix.
It’s founded on the guiding principles of upholding high professional standards, being transparent, trusted and fair, fostering a culture of partnership and collaboration, valuing the longer term consequences of our decisions, and leading by example to create a more sustainable future for everyone.
It’s part of our commitment to build a blueprint for better business.
Being a catalyst for change: we’re using our skills, voice, and relationships to work with others and influence activities that make a difference and create positive change in the world around us.
Doing the right thing: we have an active agenda on issues that are central to responsible business and create value for our stakeholders.
We’ve consciously decided to embed sustainability in our business and each part of the business champions our sustainability goals alongside their other business objectives. As a knowledge-based organisation we also feel we have a significant contribution to make by sharing our insight widely with clients and other stakeholders. One part of this is our ‘Corporate Sustainability Lessons Learned’ documents. You can read these and the many policies that help embed sustainability in our download centre.
