Our planet is trying to tell us something. Are we listening?

Powered by good: EY brings sustainability to life.

Learn how we’re creating social value by having a positive impact on our planet.

The COVID-19 crisis has forced us to adopt behavioral changes that are unexpectedly having positive effects on the environment. Let’s reflect on what positive behaviors we can sustain post-crisis, like embracing virtual meeting technology wherever possible and reducing business travel.

It’s our purpose to build a better working world and deliver long-term value to our clients, people and society.

That’s why we are leading transformative change through sustainable business solutions, practices and business operations. Becoming carbon neutral by the end of 2020 is an important step in leading that change and marking a key milestone in our sustainability journey.

Offsetting our footprint

Our two large-scale wind farms will generate enough zero-carbon electricity to offset the greenhouse gas emissions of our US business – making EY the first Big Four professional services firm that’s 100% renewable.

 

Learn how our Infrastructure Advisory services provide strategy, financing, procurement and transaction support for large-scale infrastructure projects, including renewable energy.

Inspiring our people into action

Each year, the EY-Earthwatch Ambassadors program sends teams of early career professionals on a weeklong expedition to Mexico or Peru to perform citizen science. Our ambassadors provide skills-based volunteer services to local businesses and engage in environmental field research that ultimately helps transform emerging-market communities.

 

Operating responsibly

We’re changing the way we work: reducing our air travel and investing US$1 billion in technology solutions, client services and innovation to help us do our jobs more efficiently. We’re also dedicated to sustainable business practices – from our real estate to our supply chain and the environmental education programs we offer our people.
