Reducing our impact
We’re committed to reducing the environmental impact of our business, and since 2007 have reduced our carbon emissions by 35%. This includes a 90% reduction in emissions from our offices (“scope 1&2”), through consolidating our office portfolio, investing in energy saving innovations, and sourcing almost three quarters of our energy from renewable sources. We’ve also reduced emissions from our business travel by 21% per head over the same period, in spite of our business growth, through championing the use of online meetings and collaboration tools.
Although these reductions represent great progress, we’re conscious that the remaining emissions that we produce still contribute to climate change, so we’re committed to offsetting all of our residual emissions (Scope 1, 2 & 3) as reported in our Annual Report each year through purchasing certified carbon credits from projects that are designed to avert emissions or to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
