As businesses across the globe begin to take real action to tackle climate change, World Finance has introduced its very first Sustainability Awards. The magazine, which acknowledges industry leaders across a wide range of fields each year, felt that now was the right time to issue the inaugural award in support of businesses displaying an admirable commitment to environmentalism.
“We are honoured to be recognized by World Finance Magazine for our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters in all aspects of our organization and for our ability to foster the resulting initiatives at the heart of our long-term vision,” said Isabelle Adjahi, Senior Vice President, Investor Relations and Communications – WSP’s Global Sustainability Sponsor. “Sustainability has been a longstanding focus for WSP, and we are deeply committed to the continuous improvement of our sustainability programs. As we grow, we must continue to find ways to reduce our environmental footprint and help deliver a resilient and sustainable future for generations to come.”
WSP’s focus on embedding ESG matters is an important element of our business strategy. Notably, we are aiming for a 25% reduction target in absolute, market-based greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our global operations from 2018 to 2030, with an interim reduction target of 5% by 2021. We also aim to have over 30% of management positions (business leaders and middle management) held by women by 2021.
For further information, see WSP’s most recent Global Sustainability Report, which defines our objectives and approach to embedding sustainability in our services and advice to clients, in our operations, and in the communities in which we operate.
