LED BY OUR BOARD, DELIVERED BY US ALL
Our Board-level ESG committee leads the design and delivery of our ESG strategy. Two other working committees focus on Diversity & Inclusion and Community & Sustainability, respectively.
We run an annual ESG conference for clients, our Investment Banking division runs an ESG advisory group to advise companies on best practice and our Research analysts incorporate ESG analysis into their investment conclusions.
But this is just the start. We are introducing new ideas and initiatives on an ongoing basis, so bookmark this page and check back soon.
Our commitment to ESG is supported by our purpose of ‘Guiding and nurturing people though the evolution of business’. We believe that ESG sits at the core of our strategy and is rooted in the values and behaviours which have informed our culture for more than a decade.
We are under no illusions about how much more needs to be done.
We have the enthusiasm and involvement from all levels of the organisation to support our clients, our people and our planet.
We are committed to being a responsible business in relation to our people, our community and the environment
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
We recognise that improving diversity and inclusion is both a moral and a business imperative. And while we are proud to be expanding the diversity of our staff, whether by gender, ethnicity or other characteristics, we know there is still a great deal to do, within our firm and in the City.
We are working on reducing our gross carbon footprint and aiming to become carbon neutral in the medium term. We chose to move into a low impact office and have started working on our carbon neutrality plans.
