The challenge for professional services
A growing number of businesses are stating their commitment to the climate emergency and to achieving net zero. Part of these efforts involves working with professional services that are aligned with their commitment to climate action. As office based organisations, it is relatively straightforward for professional service companies to adopt good environmental practices and therefore there is an opportunity for this sector to transition to a carbon neutral business model.
Demonstrating climate action
For professional services to demonstrate to their clients their value alignment on sustainability, they will need to demonstrate that they have their own house in order through setting commitments, meeting environmental reporting standards, measuring their carbon footprint, and implementing a climate action plan.
