At BDO, we believe we all have a role to play in protecting, preserving, and renewing our resources so that the way we live our lives today does not negatively impact future generations. We recognise the need to adapt our strategy and our services. We want to inspire, educate, and lead a sustainable business practice for our clients, in our markets and in BDO.
We seek to achieve a positive impact on our people, our clients, our communities, and our environment. To achieve this, our leadership teams are working together with BDO globally to develop services and tools that are relevant to us, to aid our journey towards sustainable growth.
Our 2023 Sustainability Report showcases the issues and initiatives we worked on across the financial year under the pillars of people, planet, prosperity and principles of governance, highlighting the shifts and changes we’ve made since publishing our first report in 2022.
Through 2023, we focused on refining processes. As we strive to progress our sustainability journey, we are ensuring we have robust, consistent processes that allow us to better measure and openly report on metrics that are important to us and play a critical role in our sustainability story.
We know we have more to do, and we’re committed to furthering our contribution to the advancement of society, the transparency of business, the protection of the planet, and to support of our people.
While we’d been on our sustainability journey for some time, we published our first Sustainability Report in 2022. It shares the material issues we identified or addressed in the financial year, along with the initiatives we delivered for our people and clients, the planet, economic prosperity and upholding our governance principles.
From measuring your carbon footprint and working towards decarbonisation to creating your sustainability strategy, meeting your reporting obligations or complying with any assurance requirements over your report, our national team of experts can also help your organisation on its sustainability journey.
Sustainability, or ESG, can appear to be a complex web of interrelated concepts and issues. In this webinar series, we aim to break that down into digestible pieces, so you can get on top of the fundamentals and start driving change in your organisation, at any stage of your ESG journey.
