ERM supports economic growth and societal progress that meets the needs of the present without compromising opportunity for future generations.
At ERM, we understand how business and sustainability goals are inextricably linked and how this connection impacts our society and environment. We believe that businesses and societies must transform in order to thrive and compete.
Our “boots to boardroom” approach to operationalizing sustainability at any level of business helps us to have an impact on pressing priorities for our clients. In developing our business strategy, we focused on the drivers that encompass significant social, economic, political, environmental or technological changes in the world and have a major impact on business and society today and for decades to come.
Three of these drivers, in particular, are significantly impacting our clients’ businesses and creating challenges that must be addressed:
- The transition to a low carbon economy;
- Business resilience; and
- ESG and sustainable finance.
It is with this understanding that we continue to evolve our services to ensure we meet our client’s changing business needs as they respond to these drivers. And while we commit to driving this transformation for all of our clients, we also believe that the work starts with our own commitments here at ERM.
ERM’s sustainability program is an overarching framework that supports our long-term business strategy and drives continual improvement. Our Sustainability Policy and Sustainability Approach articulate our commitments to sustainability.
