From the seabed to space and into the metaverse, we’re committed to a more sustainable world

We are proud to be a partner of the COP27 Presidency and the host nation. We believe that technology can support our clients with the transition to net zero through innovations and sustainable technologies.

Addressing our environmental impact and supporting the communities in which we operate is fundamental to our purpose. We have set ambitious environmental sustainability goals, to be carbon net zero by 2030 globally to support the delivery of sustainable long-term business performance, reduce risk and increase social impact.

“Through our ethical, socially and environmentally sustainable business practices, we strive to deliver value for all three of our stakeholders – our clients, our employees and our shareholders.”
