BDO is a responsibly managed firm that aspires to exceed market expectations across all sustainability issues and go beyond legal compliance to proactively reduce our environmental impacts. Our goals are to reduce our overall carbon footprint by embedding environmental controls and practices into the daily management of the firm and thereby encourage positive behaviour from our staff to achieve a greener culture.
We are adopting these measures because we believe it is simply the right thing to do in this time of climate change. In addition, we also recognise several business benefits that will ensure the long term sustainability of our strategy. Efficient use of energy and resources can help to reduce costs as well as shrinking our environmental footprint. We see increasing levels of concern and sophistication around environmental issues from our clients and feel that proactively embracing this change is a key part of our commitment to exceptional client service.
Our environmental policy, which can be downloaded below, outlines our key environmental impacts, targets and commitments. It is endorsed at the highest level, personally signed by our Managing Partner, Simon Michaels, and will be reviewed and amended on an annual basis to ensure that we continually improve.
If you have any questions about our environmental commitments please contact Jennifer Shaw, Corporate Responsibility Manager, at jennifer.shaw@.bdo.co.uk.
