Chief Executive Officer Statement
Our annual Sustainability Report is also our UNGC Communication on Progress. You will find the SDG icons throughout this Report, indicating how our sustainability efforts connect with those of the SDG’s.
We will continue to review and improve our sustainability efforts across our business, to ensure that our programs are as effective and efficient as possible in delivering value to the communities we support. We are committed to achieving carbon neutrality for Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions by 2025.
The global pandemic in 2020 has illustrated how quickly the landscape can change, affecting governments, business and the community. We are proud to have stood together with our clients and our communities during these challenging times, continuing to deliver projects and refocusing our efforts to respond to new needs in a rapidly evolving global environment.
We are pleased to report that our health and safety performance has continued to improve, our community engagement is growing locally and globally driven by the commitment of our people and we have shown strong resilience during the global pandemic, with our crisis management protocols standing up to a test like no other.
Even in times of adversity, we look over the horizon with the establishment of the GHD Foundation in late 2020. Our ambition is to use our technical skills and bring people together across borders, becoming a preferred charity and partner of global organisations - to make an impact that is both measurable and long-lasting.
Looking ahead to GHD's 100th Anniversary in eight years, our ambition is for the foundation to be globally recognised as a force for enabling more women, First Peoples and other minority groups to pursue STEAM careers, creating more resilient and cohesive communities, helping many people recover after natural disasters and much more.
