Together, building better futures since 1921

Celebrating our Centenary

2021 was a big milestone for us – we turned 100. Not many companies reach this ripe old age, so hitting our centenary is something we’re proud of and wanted to celebrate. 100 years of embracing change, innovating and navigating uncertainty. But our birthday year was as much a chance to look to the future as it was to reflect on the past. We care about building better futures so throughout the year we looked at the big issues that affect us all, from climate change and financial security to diversity & inclusion and the role that technology will increasingly have to play in the future.

You can find out more on each of these themes below and we’ll continue to explore these themes going forward. Be sure to follow us to stay up-to-date.

Our climate vision and pledge

We want to play our part in a net-zero carbon future. To mark turning 100 this year, we’re making a pledge to become carbon neutral from 2021, and to halve our carbon footprint* by 2025. We will also be lifetime net zero by 2025 - meaning we’ll have off-set all of our carbon footprint dating back to 1921. And, climate risks will be an integral part of our research, services and advice - and the way that we run our firm. You can read more about our commitments below.

*Our 2019/20 carbon footprint (before renewable energy) of 1988 tonnes.


Our climate pledge is about making sustainability intrinsic to our firm and culture - and to keep it that way - for the next 100 years.
