Our environmental commitments
The UN Global Compact has named this the “decade to deliver” on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The call for action has been accelerated as the world navigates climate crises and the global pandemic.
We have an opportunity to change the business of business by incorporating sustainable practices into the design of operations.
As a professional services company, the most significant aspects of our environmental footprint are the greenhouse gas emissions related to travel and electricity used in our locations.

Helping clients achieve their goals
Our environmental journey
Since beginning our environmental journey in 2007, we have saved more than 2.43 million megawatt hours of electricity, more than 1.22 million metric tons of CO2 and generated more than US$326 million in energy savings.
Reducing our environmental impact is built into our Code of Business Ethics (COBE) and our core values, specifically Stewardship. These inform our Environmental Responsibility Policy, which was established in 2007 and is reviewed annually by our Environment governance group.VIEW OUR HISTORICAL PROGRESS

We agree with the industry-led Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) that enhanced disclosure of climate-related financial risks improve financial impact assessments and support the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Our people are passionate about applying their skills to help the environment.
