Willis Towers Watson has announced its commitment to delivering net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and at least a 50% reduction by 2030, across the company’s business operations.

The ambition also includes a commitment to achieving 100% renewable energy supplies across the company’s real estate portfolio.

The firm added that it is also committed to minimising its environmental impact and carbon emissions through improvements to energy efficiency across the company’s operations.

This will be done by leveraging virtual meeting technologies, promoting recycling, minimising the waste sent to landfill, purchasing environmentally responsible office supplies and encouraging colleagues to adopt environmentally responsible habits.

John Haley, CEO, Willis Towers Watson, said: “As one of the world’s leading risk advisors and experts in assessing and mitigating climate risk, Willis Towers Watson is committed to supporting measures aimed at helping to tackle climate change.

“In addition, Willis Towers Watson has been closely involved with various governments, intergovernmental organisations and civil societies on climate policy and research for some years, all of whom share the collective ambition of an orderly transition toward sustainable and resilient economies and communities.”
