The ERM Foundation
The ERM Foundation was established in 1995 to enable ERM and its employees to provide funding and professional support for nonprofit organizations and social enterprises that share our commitment to creating a more sustainable and equitable world. We work in partnership with smaller organizations for whom our level of funding and targeted pro bono technical support is most impactful.

ERM sets ambitious net-zero target for 2025
To mark Earth Day 2021, we announced our commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions across our operations by 2025. To underpin this commitment, we are strengthening our science-based target for emissions reductions to a 1.5° C aligned target.
ERM was one of the first professional services companies to set a target approved by the Science Based Target Initiative in 2019. Given the important role that business has to play in achieving the goal of the Paris Agreement, we are continuing to take a leadership position in this effort – and are encouraging our clients and peers to do the same.
