“How do we all work together to tackle climate change?” It’s a big question! A non-negotiable one in our eyes, and one that every company is (or should be) working on. Climate change is considered a global emergency. Current government plans and commitments are not remotely close to achieving carbon emission reductions of 45% by 2030 – which itself is believed would only avoid some of the worst outcomes of climate change.
At a macro level, we believe businesses have an economic imperative and a moral responsibility to do everything they can to ensure a thriving world. At a micro level, clients, employees and regulators are demanding more evidence of companies’ ESG actions.
At BDO, we act on climate change because it is the right thing to do, our employees expect it, and our clients and future generations deserve it. Our Core Purpose is ‘helping you succeed’ – at its core, this is about societal purpose; there is perhaps no greater alignment than with the Climate Change agenda. How we act on ESG matters sits squarely in ‘Citizenship’ – which we have identified as a priority for our Unifying Culture.
No single firm or individual can tackle climate change alone. The solution is collaborative.
We encourage our people to be themselves
