In 2019, we committed to procuring 100% renewable energy across our global facilities by 2023, joining the RE100, a global initiative bringing together businesses committed to 100% renewable energy.
We are the largest professional services company to have a goal approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative, including a commitment to reduce scope 1 and 2 emissions 65% by 2025 from our 2016 baseline.
To break the stigma surrounding mental wellness, we created Thriving Mind—a holistic well-being program for our people developed in partnership with Stanford Medicine and Thrive Global.
Our Accessibility Center of Excellence and new Adjustment Request Tool reduces barriers to accessibility and enables our people with disabilities to succeed at work.
We work with our suppliers to advance key priorities—including environmental sustainability, human rights, inclusion, diversity and social innovation—while advancing our partnerships with suppliers and forging greater engagement and collaboration.
As a result, we can lower barriers for smaller and more diverse suppliers, promote shared values and cultivate a culture of responsible buying.
