Environmental sustainability

We are committed to enhancing the wellbeing of current and future generations, and we demonstrate that commitment by driving positive practices within our firm and with our clients, colleagues and communities.

We cultivate sustainable communities that enhance the wellbeing of current and future generations by driving positive environmental practices within our firm and with our clients, colleagues and communities.

Our four strategic pillars help bring our mission to life and guide us in fulfilling our environmental commitment.

Infusing environmental stewardship into our culture

At RSM, we define stewardship as leaving the world better than we found it, and we recognize that the actions of our people, both personally and professionally, make a significant impact on the environment.

Integrating environmental sustainability into our everyday business operations

We strive to integrate environmental policies and procedures into the way we do business to minimize our impact on the environment and reduce waste.

Reducing and monitoring our GHG emissions

We recognize the importance of developing and communicating our environmental impact. Our greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory, which highlights our material scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions, is developed using guidance from the GHG Protocol.

Collaborating with strategic ecosystems

Strategic ecosystems include a much broader set of mutually beneficial relationships that allow us to contribute and derive value on behalf of our firm, clients, colleagues and communities. These relationships enable us to enhance our environmental efforts while deepening our relationships with like-minded businesses.
