Accelerating change for lasting impact

Mounting global health, social, and environmental challenges require quick, positive change. As a firm whose very purpose seeks to make the world a better place, we’re taking meaningful, deliberate actions for our people, our planet, and the communities around us.

In our latest corporate citizenship report, we share how we’re supporting our workforce while deepening our commitment to inclusion, equity, and diversity. Minimizing our carbon footprint while continuing to set the bar with our greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. And supporting more equitable, healthy, and resilient communities—both through our giving and in our work.

Investing in our people

Our employees find meaning in work that changes the world now and for generations to come. It starts by attracting talent who want to make an impact, then investing in their personal and professional growth. We want our people to thrive in a stimulating and respectful environment—where everyone feels a sense of belonging and finds purpose in their work.

Minimizing our footprint on the planet

In response to the need for urgent climate action, we’re helping lead the transition to a low-carbon economy. As the first professional services firm in the world to reach carbon neutral status in 2006, we continue to set goals, measure, reduce, and offset our carbon emissions. Today we’re among the top 1,500 companies to set a science-based target, an approach to a zero-carbon economy that boosts innovation and drives sustainable growth. View our CDP report to see how we’re implementing the recommendations of the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).

As we grow, our emissions decline

Though we've grown in revenue, number of employees, and facilities square footage since our 2013 baseline, our absolute emissions and emissions intensity have decreased after purchasing renewable energy certificates.
