Quarterly EY Ireland Alumni Digest – Edition 5

By Marcus Gageby

Welcome to the latest edition of the Alumni Digest.

You've let us know that you want to hear more from EY about a number of topics, including sustainability. With that and the launch of COP26, this edition of Alumni Connect focuses on Sustainability. EY has a strong delegation of attendees at COP26, including Head of Sustainability for EY Ireland, Stephen Prendiville. Keep an eye out on the EY Ireland Alumni LinkedIn for updates from COP26. We also hear from 2021 EY Alumnus, Siobhán McHugh, CEO, Demand Response Association of Ireland discussing the burgeoning energy crisis facing the country.

I am delighted to let you know that EY has achieved our goal of being Carbon Neutral by year-end. The first professional services firm to do so, this achievement puts us in a paramount position to achieve Net Zero status by 2025. EY has made a conscious decision to continue to maintain factors as a result of the pandemic that contributed to reduction in carbon emissions of our people as well as introducing new policies to bolster our carbon off-set even more through our new work and people policy, EY Hybrid. 

As EY Partner Sponsor of our Alumni community, I’m interested in hearing your feedback on this newsletter, on the topics you’d like us to cover and whether you would like to feature in our interview section. Please get in touch here.
