Today’s leaders understand that profit cannot be achieved at the expense of wider society and the environment. Odgers Berndtson has a responsibility to lead in reducing climate risk by supporting our clients to identify the leaders of today and tomorrow who can deliver business performance without costing the earth.
Odgers Berndtson advises our clients on the sustainability journey no matter where the starting point. The creation of a credible and compelling sustainability vision in harmony with your overall business strategy that can be embedded throughout the organization is the surest way to enhance stakeholder value, increase employee engagement and reduce climate risk.
Investors and other stakeholders are calling on companies to disclose more about their environmental and social and governance strategies. We are proud of the work we have undertaken across all industries and sectors, to support boards to identify leaders who can deliver good business governance, which is essential to solve these challenges.
We support clients to find sustainability and environment specialists within sectors ranging from financial regulation to the built environment, consumer manufacturing and chemical and process industries. However, we do not believe sustainability is solely the domain of specialists but instead exists as a shared purpose amongst all stakeholders. This is why we are committed to ask every client and candidate we meet, in all sectors and functions around the globe, about climate change. We believe this curiosity goes hand in hand with our commitment to identify inclusive and diverse leaders.
Whilst our biggest contribution to reducing climate risk is felt in work we deliver for our clients, we are reducing our own carbon footprint.
As a responsible business we have engaged Carbon Intelligence to assist us in developing a robust decarbonisation strategy. We are well underway with calculating our current carbon footprint, across scopes 1,2 and 3 emissions globally and our reduction targets will align with climate science.
