We live in turbulent times, where interdependent megatrends are accelerating the pace of change and the volatility in our world and society. In this context, and driven by our purpose – to build trust in society and solve important problems - we see sustainability not only as continuous improvement to business-as-usual, but also about our influence in the world. It’s about how we can deliver long-term value for all our stakeholders.
Our sustainability strategy’s founded on some guiding principles – 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. It’s informed by each of the elements in our materiality matrix, is delivered via our business model, and provides the structure for our sustainability reporting.
The strategy is designed 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 and videos. You can find these, and the many policies that help us to embed sustainability in our business, in the case studies and downloads section of this website.
