Sustainability has long been a part of our business. As a firm, we are committed to making a positive contribution to a safer, healthier, prosperous and a more sustainable future for our clients, our people, our communities and our planet.
We have made significant progress over the years integrating change into our business practices: from environmental initiatives and employee health and wellbeing initiatives to creating an inclusive work environment.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 independent but interconnected goals set out by the United Nations within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, they call for urgent collective action towards global challenges. The goals themselves are simple and direct, but powerful and provide a path for businesses to direct their creativity and innovation toward specific global objectives.
Our Sustainability Charter outlines our commitment to working towards the 6 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that we believe resonates most with our firm values and make the most impact. These SDGs will be grouped into our three pillars of sustainability: Social, Economic and Environment.
We will use these SDGs to further embed our sustainability activities into our corporate strategy and current CSR practices and ensure that our strategic plans and initiatives are aligned to achieving our goals.
