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

SThree has been included in the FT’s inaugural Europe’s Climate Leaders list, which names the 300 companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in their greenhouse gas emissions intensity between 2014 and 2019.

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.

SThree’s inclusion comes just weeks after we released our first-ever ESG Impact Report which outlines ambitious targets in line with UN Sustainable Development Goals. This includes the doubling of its renewables businesses and reducing absolute carbon emissions by 20% by 2024.

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 have achieved a CDP B rating for a fifth consecutive year.

However, there’s no room for complacency and we’re aware that much more needs to be done. That’s why we’re continuing to set ourselves ambitious green targets.

“With the COP26 UN Climate Change conference in Glasgow later this year and governments setting net-zero targets, it’s vital companies commit to taking meaningful action and provide transparent reporting on their progress.
