RSK shortlisted for IEMA’s Sustainable Organisation Award

July 02, 2020

We are delighted to announce that RSK has been shortlisted for the Sustainable Organisation Award at the IEMA Sustainability Impact Awards 2020. The annual awards celebrate the achievements of organisations striving to tackle the global challenges of the climate and environmental emergency, which remain at the top of RSK’s agenda.

Having helped organisations to minimise their environmental impacts since it was founded in 1989, RSK has been at the forefront of sustainability for more than 30 years. Promoting the concept of sustainability in all that we do has always been one of the company’s key guiding principles and it continues to inform every decision and action.

The key components of RSK’s sustainability strategy in recent years have included a group-wide corporate responsibility and sustainability programme supported by a network of corporate responsibility and sustainability representatives throughout the company; switching to a 100% renewable energy tariff for electricity supplies to UK premises; implementing a green travel plan; and developing an RSK sustainability route map, published in 2019, that lays out the company’s sustainability objectives to 2025.

“Our approach to sustainability has combined a high-level strategic approach, driven by RSK’s board of directors, with local implementation empowering all our employees to make a difference, whether it be through community outreach, charity fundraising, energy saving initiatives or office recycling programmes,” says RSK Sustainability Reporting Consultant Jack Lloyd.

“Furthermore, our sustainability route map is a visualisation of the group’s commitments, targets and objectives to 2025 highlighting their links to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and RSK’s guiding principles and business strategy. First and foremost, it is a means of ensuring that we are living up to our values and leading by example in delivering positive social and environmental outcomes, but it is also intended to promote discussion in our industry about where we are going and what we all need to do if we are to support the transition to a sustainable climate-resilient world.

“The quality of all of the entries was truly inspirational and showcased the amazing, energetic and impactful work that is being undertaken in the environmental and sustainability sector,” commented an IEMA representative.

The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony, dubbed the ‘sustainability event of the year’, which will be held at The Brewery in London, UK, on 18 September.
