Environmental Sustainability

We are committed to minimising our environmental footprint, and to working with our clients and consultants to minimise theirs.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We monitor our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions through a proprietary carbon dashboard. We track emissions both by office and by client project and pay particular attention to business travel, which accounts for some 80% of our total footprint.

Our target is to keep our post-Covid carbon footprint below 50% of our 2019 emissions, and in our financial year 2022 we were pleased to see that our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions were only c.25% of 2019.

Our carbon reduction plans are accredited by the Science Based Targets initiative.

Managing our waste

Sustainable consumption and circular economy principles are key to environmental sustainability. We are working hard to reduce and recycle the waste generated by our teams and consultants, and carefully measure our efforts. Our digital first policy advocates minimal printing. And we are introducing a more sustainable purchasing approach, with the intention of supporting local businesses.

Amplifying our impact

Raising awareness of environmental sustainability challenges and solutions is a key goal of Eden McCallum's sustainability strategy. We work with our clients to help them mitigate the risks and seize the commercial opportunities associated with the growing climate and biodiversity crises. In addition to our client work, we host annual events on the journey to Net Zero with Lord Turner, chairman of the Energy Transitions Commission; run an annual client survey to track and prompt action on sustainability; and support initiatives such as the launch of a board toolkit on tackling climate change, which we developed with Chapter Zero.
