We are committed to ensuring that our business decisions minimize our environmental footprint and contribute to more sustainable outcomes for ABCS, our clients and society.
Accurate data collection and management of our environmental footprint is essential to measuring our performance and identifying where and how we can drive improvements most effectively.
We have made significant efforts to improve the collection and aggregation of environmental performance data, and intend to use the data from each preceding fiscal year as a meaningful benchmark against which we can measure our future achievements.
Our greenhouse gas emissions represent our most significant material environmental issue. To reduce business travel and its associated environmental impacts and costs, we are encouraging employees to conduct meetings using teleconferencing, web-based communications and videoconferencing, and are promoting this by significantly increasing our global videoconferencing infrastructure. We expect these actions to have an impact on the carbon footprint of our operations in the future.
