Our Operational Impact

Minimizing our operational impact is a prerequisite of sound environmental policy and a necessary complement to our core business activities.

In all that we do, we strive to find smart, sustainable solutions that make business sense and are environmentally and socially responsible.

Our Environmental Policy Framework articulates the firm’s commitment to advancing the environmental stewardship of our corporate operations. The key tenants of the framework and our collective commitment to addressing climate change helped the firm achieve carbon neutrality across our operations and business travel beginning in 2015, and are providing momentum to fulfil our 2025 operational goals and 2030 goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions in our operations and supply chain.

Operational Impact Dimensions

Our 2025 Operational Goals

As a firm, we have been on a journey to minimize our impact on the environment since 2005. Since then, we have held ourselves accountable to public commitments and set ourselves more challenging goals, ensuring that our facilities and how we run them, minimizes our impact on climate change and that we create smart, sustainable solutions.  In addition to seeking LEED certification for our buildings, we certify all our operationally controlled facilities to ISO 14001, all onsite events are certified to ISO 20121 standards and we source renewable electricity equivalent to 100% of our global consumption.

Our 2025 goals aim to further improve our performance across a range of areas, including energy management and direct renewable electricity sourcing.
