Economic loss, displaced populations, lost habitats. Increasingly common extreme events can be devastating to organizations and communities, and resiliency is key. We work with business, government, and nonprofit organizations to design and implement programs and policies that build resilience against the effects of climate change.
We’re also committed to a financial system that more accurately reflects climate risk. In support of recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures, we’re disclosing our own climate-related activities. These recommendations enable markets to address the financial impact of climate change by increasing transparency on climate-related risks and opportunities to promote more informed financial decision-making.
Thanks to operational changes for efficiency and reduced emissions, the purchase of renewable energy, and investments in high-quality carbon offsets, our net-zero carbon status has been in place since 2006. And as our revenue, headcount, and real estate presence have grown, our absolute emissions and emissions intensity have decreased.
“Our purpose is to build a more resilient and prosperous world for all, demonstrated through our commitment to our clients, our people, and our planet.”
Now we’re offering increased visibility into our financial impacts from climate, including:
- Our governance around climate-related risks and opportunities.
- Actual and potential impacts of material, climate-related risks and opportunities on our businesses, strategy, and financial planning.
- How we identify, assess, and manage climate-related risks and opportunities.
- Metrics and targets we use to assess and manage material climate-related risks and opportunities.
