Our Climate Change and Sustainability Services (CCaSS) professionals help governments and organizations adapt to the threat of climate change and address some of the world’s most significant resource and environmental challenges. In particular, CCaSS teams have innovated in areas such as climate resilience, the circular economy, renewable energy, water accounting and alternative waste treatment.
As leading providers of sustainability services, we continue to contribute to the sustainability dialogue, share knowledge with clients and the broader business community, and influence leading practice. Collaborations this past year include teaming up with the UNGC to assess the state of sustainable supply chains and continuing to provide strategic support leading up to launch of the Natural Capital Protocol.
We continue to invest in ways to address our biggest environmental impacts of office energy use and business travel, and to improve the way we measure our progress. A number of EY member firms have implemented policies to reduce environmental impact, up to and including becoming carbon and water neutral by 2020. Our priority is to put in place a global framework to accelerate adoption of leading practices across our whole organization.
