As a service provider with more than 5,500 employees located in over 160 offices in more than 40 countries and territories, our operational footprint is relatively small compared to most of our clients. Nonetheless, it is important that we understand our direct impact on the environment, our people and society and take the actions necessary to operate in a responsible manner. With in-house technical expertise across a broad spectrum of disciplines, we are well positioned to address our own sustainability challenges.
Each year, we engage with key internal and external stakeholders to understand their interests and what they deem the most important or material issues. We then set out to describe why an issue is material, how we as a business manage that issue, and our performance against stated targets. This information can be found in the Impact from operations section.
