Montagu Evans has this week reinforced its commitment to a more sustainable future by becoming part of Business Declares, a movement for accelerating action around climate change, biodiversity loss and social injustice. Business Declares is an official partner of the UN COP26 Race to Zero Campaign and connects its members with this worldwide movement.
In our Net Zero Carbon Strategy, we will commit to the following principles:
- We commit to decarbonise our operations and supply chain, which includes reshaping how we serve clients, sustain reductions in travel and increase the use of zero carbon energy.
- We will embed the implications of climate change and other Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) related factors across the work we do with clients, from strategy to implementation.
- We will adhere to corporate reporting standards that Include comprehensive non-financial reporting practices.
- We commit to aid research and collaboration with other businesses, policy makers and organisations to accelerate the transition to a Net Zero Economy.
Over the coming months, and as part of Business Declares, the firm will share its plans with colleagues, clients and contacts, raising awareness further, working collaboratively and creating more opportunities for change.
It will also introduce more education, training and support; increase research and thought leadership, and scale up action through industry and policy engagement.
“Climate change is the defining crisis of our time and it’s happening even faster than we expected,” said Rob Bower, Managing Partner of Montagu Evans. “The transition to a low carbon world must accelerate to meet the commitments made in the Paris Climate Agreement. Our net zero strategy provides an essential platform to deliver this.”
