Environmental Sustainability

We are acutely aware of environmental challenges and committed to minimising our environmental footprint. Our business model generates a fraction of the emissions per FTE of traditional consulting firms. We amplify our impact through our work with clients and independent consultants, to drive deeper, faster change.

Reducing our carbon footprint

We have a robust approach to carbon reduction and mitigation. We monitor our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions through a proprietary carbon dashboard, and pay particular attention to business travel, which accounts for over 85% of our total footprint.

Our short-term target of reducing Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 46% by 2029/30 is approved by SBTi and we are well on track to meet this; and to meet our voluntary, more ambitious target of reducing total emissions by 50% by 2024/25.   In 2022/23 we invested funds raised by an internal carbon levy in verified carbon removal credits to neutralise 100% of those emissions which we cannot yet reduce.

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

Managing our waste

Across our offices, we have adopted the principles of the waste hierarchy (avoid, reduce, reuse, and recycle). We reduce waste through extensive recycling, donating used office items and sourcing the majority of new office furnishings second-hand. Our digital first policy advocates minimal printing and we are committed to sourcing responsibly, as is reflected in our procurement policy and supplier code of conduct.

Amplifying our impact

Working with clients and consultants to drive deeper, faster change to meet sustainability challenges is a key pillar of Eden McCallum's sustainability strategy. We help our clients mitigate the risks and seize the commercial opportunities associated with the growing climate and biodiversity crises.
