We ensure that our people are trained on our business standards and culture, including those related to environmental, social and governance objectives, so that policies, procedures and standards are appropriately implemented. For example, our partners and managing directors worldwide participate in our Chairman’s Forum, a mandatory, in-person three-hour training session focused on reputational risk management, conduct and the critical responsibility of every employee to strengthen our culture and protect our reputation. 

Training on ESG issues is provided globally to relevant employees, while additional specialized training is tailored by region and industry to select employees as appropriate. 

In addition, the Environmental Markets Group convenes thought leaders to speak to our people globally on topical environmental and sustainability-related issues. In 2018, we launched an online training program that provides environmental and social reputational risk training for target audiences through online platforms.
