In recent years, the concept of sustainability and responsible growth has gained momentum across various industries, and the accountancy sector is no exception. Embracing an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy at Henderson Loggie is very important to us. Over the last few years, we have been working hard on our ESG strategy and we have four teams who are working on our four ESG pillars; Environment, Community, People and Governance.
Team: David Archibald, Steve McNaught
Our Environmental team are working on minimising our carbon footprint by implementing eco-friendly practices such as energy conservation, waste reduction and sustainable procurement. Adopting digital technologies for document management and communication is also important so that we continue to reduce paper usage. But that is only part of the story, our team are currently in the procurement process of finding an external partner to work with us to help us reduce our carbon footprint and help us on a journey to net zero. We will keep this page up to date with how we are progressing on a net zero journey and the steps we are putting in place to help us get there.
