Sustainability

Our approach

RSK has recognised and championed the importance of environmental and social impact since its inception over 30 years ago, with “promoting the concept of sustainability in all that we do” being one of our nine business principles.

As a fast-growing global business, we know the role we can and must play in tackling the environmental, economic, and social challenges we all face. This is why our work is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), so our business and the solutions we provide continue to address some of the greatest challenges societies have ever faced.

Our corporate strategy defines our commitment to promote sustainability in all that we do, and our Sustainability Route Map sets clear milestones to keep us moving towards our overarching goals. The SDGs are at the heart of our mission and we remain focused on doing the right thing – protecting the environment, reducing our carbon footprint and that of our clients and supporting the communities and societies in which we work.

From our own commitments and practices to the solutions we offer our clients, we demonstrate what responsible business of today looks like.

Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

In recent years, RSK has directly aligned its service offering to the SDGs – a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity – and this remains the driving force behind the diversification of our client offering.

From improving farm productivity, to creating new habitats for biodiversity net gain and providing water services, our practical solutions are delivering tangible results against the SDGs.

Here we have identified a selection of SDGs where we can have the most influence and impact, but remain committed to contributing towards all 17 interconnected goals through our work with clients and our own sustainability commitments.

💧 It's #WorldWetlandsDay, which aims to raise awareness of the vital role of wetlands for people and the planet.

💚 We need to change our mindset around these essential habitats and their importance.
