The changing needs within society drives our business to work hard to understand the broader landscape we operate within, including stakeholder expectations. This means taking an active role in global conversations to ensure our business is meeting our purpose and ultimately making a positive contribution. Based on this understanding we make commitments to how we manage our business and actively participate in forums to shape the future of our industry. For example:
We’re on a journey to think about how we can create positive impact through every decision, every day – and create value for our clients in helping them to navigate risks and opportunities that arise from solving sustainability challenges. That means building awareness of our people on key issues and investing in the development of innovative solutions such as Total Impact Measurement and Management (TIMM) and the Sustainable Development Goals navigator delivered to clients through our Sustainability and Climate Change practice.
The sustainability performance of our suppliers can impact our ability to build and sustain trust, while our purchasing decisions provide an opportunity to influence social and environmental outcomes in our value chain and support a diverse array of suppliers.
Across the globe, our firms take action to engage with suppliers to understand their approach to corporate responsibility, seek to work with those whose goals and values align with ours, and look for opportunities to work together to improve outcomes. For example, our UK firm recently held training for our suppliers in measuring and managing their carbon footprint.
