Global management consulting firm L.E.K. Consulting has pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions across its operations by 2030.
The company – which has been carbon-neutral since 2008 – has set out a programme to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its operations and invest in initiatives that remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Its sustainability strategy is based on five pillars for reducing its carbon footprint: tracking emissions, offsetting emissions, changing employee behaviour, switching to green energy and continually innovating and engaging on the sustainability and net zero imperative.
L.E.K intends to ensure all its offices are powered by renewable energy “in as short a timeframe as possible” and work with employees to adopt principles and practices to reduce their emissions.
Stuart Jackson, L.E.K. Global Managing Partner said: “Like our clients, we are keenly tuned in to the importance of reducing carbon emissions to society overall.
“We acted early to understand and address the impact of our carbon footprint and we are continuing to strive for industry-leading environmental practices by constantly refining our approach to monitoring carbon emissions, being transparent in reporting them and planning initiatives that advance our sustainability goals as well as our clients’.”
