“This includes our colleagues, the partners we work with, the communities we serve and investors who are placing increasing emphasis on ESG in the global capital markets.
“We’ve identified much of what we need to do to meet our operationally net zero carbon 2025 ambition, including looking at every aspect of our business operations, from travel to energy sources.
“We are also focussing on the way we design, build and operate and deconstruct our buildings, as well as sourcing materials and products that will help us reach this target.”
