Happy New Year! 2021 marks our centenary, something to be proud of and to celebrate.
Although the start of 2021 isn’t without its challenges, we can see light at the end of this Covid tunnel and our thoughts turn to a potential return to normal. A time to really celebrate.
But is getting back to “normal” good enough? Perhaps we need to return to a better normal and embrace some of the things we’ve learned on our extremely steep learning curve over the last year.
Join us for an event on climate change, as part of our 100th birthday activities, where we'll be focussing on, why we must all take action, highlighting what can be done and the differences our actions can make to help shape our futures.
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.
*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.
