Climate, environment & sustainability colleague group
The climate, environment and sustainability group was created to help colleagues and the firm to take real actions towards improving the sustainability of our working practices and work environment, as well as our individual lives. Its objectives include establishing climate and sustainability metrics, facilitating the gathering of data to measure our current and future performance, and driving colleague engagement in environmental initiatives.
"There are so many great ways we can be environmentally conscious and sustainable, both at work and in our personal lives. As part of the climate, environment and sustainability group I can contribute to the work Brodies is doing and hope to show colleagues how we can all be empowered to make a positive difference in our own way."
