At Grant Thornton, people come first. We listen to our clients, colleagues and communities and hear what matters to them. Then, we make it matter to us.
Our people-first approach inspires the way we work every day, and it is the foundation for our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) excellence. Because we know our ESG initiatives impact more than just the now — they are critical actions we take to carry out our responsibilities to our people, communities and our planet moving forward.
In this year’s report, we share our ESG strategy, goals, initiatives and progress we’ve made in key areas, including diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I); talent attraction, retention and development; employee health and well-being; technology and innovation; and climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. We also furthered our commitment to advancing ESG services for our clients — from strategy and operations to reporting and assurance — centered on meeting clients where they are and determining the best path forward.
We believe in transparency, and we hold ourselves accountable as we strive to make progress each year. An important step we took this year in our ESG reporting was to combine our Sustainability Report with our annual DE&I Report. DE&I is core to how we foster a caring, high-performance culture which serves as the foundation of our progress in many areas of ESG.
We are proud of our progress — and the systems we’ve built to support our efforts — but we are focused on the future and the actions we must take to become a more sustainable firm, adviser and employer. And that can’t happen alone — together with our stakeholders, we are determined to create stronger futures for our clients, colleagues, communities and generations to come.
