Inspiring a new approach to business
For most organisations, there is a growing business imperative to address sustainability. The material risks that companies face are broadening and becoming more complex. These mounting risks have led to the emergence of a global sustainability movement, driven by capital markets, governments, communities and various stakeholders. This demand for transparency and accountability in environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters calls for better understanding of the impact of business and industry on the environment and our societies - and an effective response.
BDO’s approach to sustainability is underpinned by our WHY – People helping people achieve their dreams. This guides every action we take to ensure a more sustainable organisation so that the way we live our lives today does not negatively impact future generations.
Everything we do at BDO is viewed through a sustainability lens to ensure that we implement and embed the principles of sustainability across all BDO firms as a global initiative and a business imperative.
As a member of the Net Zero Financial Service Providers Alliance, the BDO global network has committed to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions before 2050—and halving our emissions by 2030—in alignment with the Paris Agreement. We are working to measure our carbon baseline and to develop a roadmap detailing carbon emission mitigation strategies for our global organisation.
Sustainability is a journey and there will always be more work to be done. We are fully committed to doing everything we can to contribute to the advancement of society, the transparency of business, and the protection of the planet.
