Our ESG Services

It’s more important than ever for organisations to adopt environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) commitments, and take action to deliver a better world. We’re here to partner with you at every stage, from concept to design and delivery.

Our Strategy

With ESG principles embedded into everything we do, the goal of our Sustainable Legacies strategy is straightforward: to ensure that the way we run our business, and the work we do in partnership with our clients, leaves a positive, lasting impact for communities and our planet.

Enhancing governance
To do better, we must be better.
The time to act is now

Governance is the foundation for how our leaders ensure effective corporate and business ESG management. Through enhancing our governance, we're achieving our ESG goals faster and setting more ambitious targets for the future.

We're already making steps

We've developed an enterprise framework to assess ESG risk which we are using to determine which projects we work on. We're increasing awareness and accountability in our own business and incorporating ESG-related targets in our CEO and officer compensation.

Implemented global ESG risk framework in April 2021 and updated it post-COP26.

To ensure the work we do aligns with our Sustainable Legacies strategy we implemented a comprehensive global ESG risk framework in April 2021. This risk framework was also refreshed after COP26 to ensure it is also fully aligned with agreed objectives from this key global conference. We continue to review our ESG-related risk framework and develop recommendations for respective updates – including how we can better support clients transition away from fossil fuels.
