Pledges Multi-Year Commitment
New York – Duff & Phelps, the world’s premier provider of governance, risk and transparency solutions, today announced that it has achieved carbon neutrality across all of its 25 global offices and is now a CarbonNeutral® company, certified in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol. The company has pledged a continued commitment to carbon neutrality globally and will review its offset program every five years.
Becoming a CarbonNeutral company is a primary step in a long-term strategy of emission reduction. The process involves reducing carbon emissions across all or parts of scopes 1, 2 and 3 through a combination of internal efficiencies and offsets. Working with third-party climate finance experts, Natural Capital Partners, Duff & Phelps offsets emissions each year by supporting carbon finance projects that positively impact local communities. All projects are tracked against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to Duff & Phelps’ broader environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy. The supported projects are located around the world and are representative of Duff & Phelps’ global reach.
Marty Dauer, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at Duff & Phelps, said, “Becoming a CarbonNeutral company is an important step on our path to achieving our social and environmental sustainability goals. Among our commitments to a cleaner world for future generations, we have supported a number of environmentally focused charities through the Duff & Phelps Charitable Foundation along with our multi-year pledge to carbon neutrality.”
Natalie Taylor, Director of Client Engagement at Natural Capital Partners, said, “We are delighted to be working with Duff & Phelps to achieve its ESG goals. By becoming a CarbonNeutral company and using high-quality offsets, Duff & Phelps is demonstrating climate leadership and contributing to a range of impactful emission reduction projects around the world. We look forward to continuing to work with Duff & Phelps on its climate journey.”
