Why climate risk and low carbon economy transition are material topics for ERM
As a leading sustainability consultancy, climate-related risk is not just an environmental issue, but also one that has a direct impact on ERM’s business, reputation as well as our ability to retain and attract talent. Our most significant contribution in helping to combat climate change is through our work with clients, in some of the most energy-intensive industries, as they transition to a lower-carbon future. In addition, we continue to take steps toward reducing our direct and indirect impact on climate change. Many environmental issues – from waste and water management to protecting biodiversity – are integral to a holistic approach to climate change.
We are using the lessons learned from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic to re-examine our approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions related to business travel and commuting.
