Adare SEC has launched its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, making public its robust commitment to making a difference.
The strategy articulates a series of protocols, processes and tools across the organisation to enable Adare SEC to ‘conduct business ethically, effectively and efficiently for the benefit of the business, colleagues, partners, clients and local and global communities’.
Tom Prestwich, Chief Customer Officer, Adare SEC comments: “Sustainable and positive change has always been core to the values and principles of the business and we are incredibly proud to be launching our new ESG strategy. It’s a strategy that not only enables us to align with our clients’ ESG aspirations but which also reaffirms the amazing progress we have already made across every aspect of the business.
“We are conscious that sustainability is not just about adopting the latest energy-efficient technologies or turning to renewable sources of power. As set out in our policy, our sustainability approach is also about promoting the responsibility of every individual we work with and is about changing our way of operating to reduce power and water consumption, support our communities, nurture our employees and work to a governance framework which promotes ethical practice across the entire company and beyond.”
Adare SEC’s commitment to its ESG goals is evidenced by the company’s recent award of a Gold rating from EcoVadis – the world’s largest and most trusted provider of sustainability ratings. Adare SEC achieved this Gold rating one year ahead of its stated target date.
Further, Adare SEC has joined the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) which contributes to the UN’s Race to Zero Global climate change agenda, committing to a 46% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.
