Contributing to society

Why contributing to society and local communities is a material topic for ERM:

As a sustainability-focused company, we encourage our consultants to share the lessons learned and insights gained from our work on more than 20,000 projects annually. In particular, we focus on those technical and professional skills that can have the greatest positive impact. This impact is driven not only by our work with clients, but notably through the work of the ERM Foundation.


ERM works with a range of organizations with a common purpose to shape a more sustainable future. During the past year, our consultants published thought leadership papers, played an active role in professional associations and delivered hundreds of presentations at conferences around the world.
