Our environmental commitments

Reducing our footprint

The path to net-zero

We've pledged to do our part to keep global warming below 1.5°C as one of 1,100 companies that has signed the UNGC’s Business Ambition for 1.5° Pledge.

Science-based target

By 2025 we aim to reduce our absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 11% and our Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 65%.

Achieve net-zero emissions by 2025

We’ll focus on actual reductions across our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions and are investing in nature-based carbon removal solutions.

Move to zero waste

We’ll reuse or recycle 100% of our e-waste, such as computers and servers, as well as all of our office furniture by 2025.

Plan for water risk

We’re developing plans to reduce the impact of flooding, drought and water scarcity on our business and our people in high-risk areas.

What are Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions?


Direct emissions from owned or controlled sources


Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating and cooling consumed by the reporting company


Includes all other indirect emissions that occur in a company's value chain

Investing in a low-carbon future

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)

We signed the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow SAF pledge, which includes an aviation industry goal of flying on 10% SAF by 2030.

Supporting biodiversity

In collaboration with the UK Council for Sustainable Business, we developed the Get Nature Positive handbook for business.
