Environmental Commitments

Our global environmental sustainability programme supports the numerous local initiatives we undertake, led by colleagues in each of our locations. In 2022 we began our global partnership with Planet Mark and are proud to have achieved their prestigious Business Certification, a recognised symbol of sustainability progress. As a Planet Mark Certified Business, our colleagues, clients and communities benefit from the assurance that our carbon footprint has been independently verified. We will be held accountable by Planet Mark, an esteemed and objective partner, as we work to reduce our carbon emissions.


We have pledged to reduce our environmental impact by:

  • Making a firm commitment to reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year
  • Working with Planet Mark to set and achieve short and long term goals to reduce our energy consumption, waste and water usage
