Financial Times names SThree on list of Europe’s Climate Leaders for second year

SThree has been included in the Financial Times-Statista list of Europe’s Climate Leaders for a second year in a row, and ranked higher than other recruitmentment companies in the Consulting and Professional services sector.

The list names over 400 companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) intensity between 2015 and 2020. The figures take into account Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions – those produced directly by the company and the resources it owns, and those created in generating the energy used by the organisation.

This year’s list tightened the rules for the largest greenhouse gas emitters and shows the ever-challenging pressure that companies are facing in order to raise their game on climate-related matters.

SThree’s inclusion comes a week after we announced our partnership with Earthly to support projects that remove carbon, restore biodiversity and supports local communities, and a few months after we released our first-ever TCFD report. As a business we are committed to building an sustainable and ethical business for the future, read more about our goals and targets in our people and planet section.

Gemma Branney, Global Head of ESG for SThree, said:

“We are delighted to be recognised for our hard work in tackling climate change. We’ve made good progress in reducing our carbon emissions and this continues to be a priority as we consider our transition to net zero.”

“With the world focused on net-zero targets off the back of COP26, it’s vital companies commit to taking meaningful action and provide transparent reporting on their progress, and this is core to our business”

We’d like to also congratulate many of our clients by inclusion in this list, show the vital role STEM plays in innovating and transitioning to net zero.
