Reducing our environmental impact

Safeguarding the planet and reducing our impact on the environment

Protecting the planet

As a business we acknowledge the global threat posed by climate change and we take our responsibility for environmental stewardship seriously, as in order to empower people and organisations to fulfil their unique potential, we must also protect the planet.  

From using renewable energy sources and reducing our emissions, to investing in reforestation initiatives around the world, we are taking a variety of actions to reach our target of net zero by 2040 across Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  

Our ambition is to be an environmentally conscious business which understands and reduces its environmental impact globally.

Our key ESG targets and progress

Reducing our environmental impact

Across Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2040

  • Responsible consumption and production
  • Climate action



Partnering with the World Land Trust

We’ve partnered with the World Land Trust since 2015, investing in programmes to protect and restore threatened forests to support the protection of carbon-rich habitats in key areas of conservation importance. 

Our operations are offset through the World Land Trust Carbon Balanced Programme, which means we invest in carbon offset schemes equivalent to our emissions, as assessed by World Land Trust carbon specialists. Through our partnership with the World Land Trust, we offset more than 3,000 tonnes of our CO₂ emissions in 2023. 

Through the World Land Trust we also plant a tree for every permanent candidate placement made by our recruitment service line globally, as well as one tree for every employee in our outsourcing service line – over 16,600 in 2023. We currently support programmes in Armenia, to restore a corridor for leopards and lynx; in Brazil, to replenish critically threatened Atlantic Forest habitats; and India, to reforest a corridor for safe passage of the Asian Elephant and other species.

Reducing our emissions

We’re taking action to reduce our emissions to help us reach our target of net zero by 2040 across Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. When any of our offices renew or take a new lease we choose a renewable energy supplier where available. We’re also focused on reducing our emissions from business travel, with a reduction in business travel emissions per head of 43% compared to the 2019 base line year. And we are moving our company car fleet to hybrid or electric vehicles in the UK and EU, with 47% hybrid or electric in 2023. 

Additionally, we are looking at enhancing our Scope 3 emission reporting by including a wider range of categories, with a view to their incorporation into our 2040 net zero target.
