Our Strategy

Our industry faces challenges to reduce its emissions and transition skills towards delivering the green economy. Recognising our responsibility to people and the planet, Briggs & Forrester Group’s Sustainability Strategy outlines the principle which will ensure we deliver our vision for a sustainable future.

We have laid out our long-term ambitions in the areas of Our Business, Our People and Our Product, which together will deliver our vision.

Our ambitions have been shaped by the UN sustainability Development Goals :

Our Business – SDG 7, 9, 11, 13, 17

Our Society – SDG 3, 4, 5, 8, 10

Our Product – SDG 9, 12, 15, 17

Progress will be reviewed and published on an annual basis.

Our Business

We want to play our part in tackling our carbon emissions and those of our supply chain, moving towards a net zero world.

Our business aims by 2030:

  • All office electricity usage from renewable sources
  • All offices to have implemented Carbon Reduction Plans
  • Generate renewable energy for our own use
  • Achieve Net Zero in our scope 1 and 2 emissions
  • Achieve SBTi approval for our Carbon Reduction Plan
  • 100% of our offices will have access to EV charging points
  • Maximum company car fleet emissions will be 40g/km

Our supply chain aims by 2030:

  • Be a Supply Chain Sustainability School (SCSS) partner
  • We will have set SCSS sustainability learning pathways to our top 500 supply chain partners
  • Our top 25% of suppliers (by spend) will be net zero
  • Our top 10% subcontract supply chain partners (by spend) will be net zero
  • 100% of our supply chain will have completed sustainability learning pathways

By 2040 we want to achieve net zero across our business and supply chain.

We take sustainability serious and are taking action to continuously improve the way we work.

Our Carbon Reduction Plan outlines the steps that we are taking to reduce our carbon footprint on our pathway to net zero.

Our Society

As an EOT our people are our most valuable assets. Ensuring their needs are met and investing in an inclusive, diverse and fair workplace helps to deliver excellence at every level of our business and ensure it remains an attractive place for careers.

  • At least 10& of our direct employees will be in continual professional development or ‘earn and learn’ positions

Our Product

Our end goal is to further reduce the impact of our projects, helping to protect and even enhance the environment.

By 2030 we will:

  • Offer low carbon alternatives to high impact materials
  • Offer alternatives with an optimised lifecycle
  • Offer a pathway to net zero in operation
  • 100% of projects to eliminate avoidable waste
