Environment and communities
We take a responsible attitude to the environment and to the communities in which we live and work.
SLR has signed up to the United Nations Climate Neutral Now pledge and has committed to reduce SLR’s operational GHG emissions to a climate neutral position by 2030. In addition to this commitment, SLR has also signed up to the Science Based Targets initiative’s (SBTi) Business Ambition for 1.5°C . This commits SLR to measure its full value chain emissions, both upstream and downstream of our operations, and set a Net-Zero target within the next 2 years, in line with what climate science says is necessary to keep warming below 1.5°C.
Alongside our targets for continual improvement, we encourage our employees to identify quick-win opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and offices, and we run initiatives to share these ideas and implement them in our other locations.
In many ways our greatest contribution to the environment is achieved through the advice we provide to our clients. As environmental consultants, our core activities are focussed on resource efficiency, waste minimisation, renewable energy, managing environmental impacts, and the provision of sympathetic landscape design & development.
We strive to contribute to the prosperity of the communities in which we work. To achieve this, we encourage our people and teams to connect with their local and professional communities and to contribute positively to these. This is supported by corporate sponsorship and charity donations, with decisions on how these are allocated and shared being driven by our employees in each office.
