Since September 2019, we’ve been working hard to deliver on our climate commitments. We promised to achieve net carbon zero in 2019 and work to reduce our scope 3 emissions. We pledged to take the crisis into account when developing our new strategy. We set a goal to use the law to address the crisis. And we made commitments around empowering and encouraging our people; collaborating with others outside the firm; and regular reporting and assessments.
