Social and Governance

This is a once in a generation chance to accelerate change,
and make things right. Are you with us?

Your stakeholders are increasingly informing their decisions based on your environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials.

Consumers are choosing brands for their ethical behaviour and their record on climate change. Investors are favouring businesses with robust ESG frameworks. And governments are implementing regulations requiring organisations to increase transparency in areas such as diversity, equal pay, carbon emissions and modern slavery.

That makes your ESG efforts crucial to long-term value creation and growth.

We believe that sustainable growth is the only way to build a successful business and have a lasting positive impact on our environment and society. That’s why we’ve published our ESG commitments in Our Impact Plan. And it’s why we’ve launched a multi year investment programme to drive world-class expertise and solutions to support our clients to manage the risks and opportunities of ESG too.
