Environmental, social, and corporate governance

Our approach


  • Climate risk assessment: We will conduct a comprehensive assessment of climate-related risks and opportunities, including the impact of more regular extreme weather events and surge resilience, regulatory changes, and the carbon transition to net zero CO2 emissions
  • Net zero: We will establish clear targets for reducing our carbon footprint and achieving net zero by 2030. Implement energy-efficient practices, such as office sustainability initiatives, sustainable business travel guidance and remote work policies
  • Supply chain sustainability: We collaborate with suppliers to evaluate and improve the sustainability of our supply chain, ensuring responsible sourcing and minimising environmental impact through the delivery of goods and services


  • Diversity and inclusion: We will foster a diverse and inclusive workplace by implementing diversity training programs and creating a culture that values equality and inclusion
  • Community engagement: We will engage in community outreach and support initiatives that align with our core values, and encourage employees to volunteer and participate in social causes
  • Employee well-being: We will prioritise the well-being of our workforce by promoting mental and physical health programmes, work-life balance, and support systems for employees


  • Board oversight: We have a dedicated ESG champion on the board of directors to provide oversight, set goals, and monitor progress on Sustainability initiatives
  • Transparency and reporting: Enhance ESG disclosure through regular reporting, following industry standards and guidelines, such as the annual Streamlined Energy & Carbon Reporting (SECR)

What are we doing?

Guage icon

GHG emissions measurement
We annually produce up-to-date baseline emissions illustrations, including emissions modelling to 2030.

Basket icon

Centralised sustainable procurement model
Controlled and responsible supplier selection and product lifecycle data gathering helps us to make more intelligent, sustainable procurement choices.

Car icon

Company car fleet
We continue to buy and use electric and hybrid fleet vehicles and encourage sustainable travel choices where practicable amongst our workforce.

Home icon

Home working and business travel
We operate a hybrid working model which allows office-based employees to work from home or another location for three days per week, thus reducing commuter travel and energy consumption.
