Grant Thornton spotlights ESG progress with 2021 Sustainability Report
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 14, 2022--
Grant Thornton LLP has released its third annual sustainability report outlining the firm’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives and progress.
The 2021 Sustainability Report details Grant Thornton’s recent efforts in priority areas such as talent attraction, retention and development ― as well as employee health, safety and well-being. Further, it spotlights Grant Thornton’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, while also highlighting the firm’s goals and initiatives related to environmental sustainability — including a science-based goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. Additionally, the report explains how Grant Thornton is helping its clients understand the ESG landscape, mitigate their risks and set and execute their own ESG strategies.
“Our 2021 sustainability report is an in-depth look at the ways we took care of our people and our communities during another year defined by the ongoing pandemic,” said Brad Preber, CEO of Grant Thornton. “Our purpose — to make business more personal and to build trust into every result — continues to be our guiding light as we prioritize sustainability and embrace ESG issues in today’s trying times.”
Grant Thornton’s chief risk and compliance officer, Beatrix Bernauer, sums up the report simply: “People want to work for a diverse organization that cares deeply for them and for our collective future, and that’s exactly the kind of organization we’re continuously honing at Grant Thornton.”
