We have always recognised our social responsibility to our local communities.
- In 2014, we set new targets for the next three years
- Target that normalised emissions will not increase
- Absolute emissions’ increase is limited to 5% increase pa, despite company growth of 15% pa
- These targets include the commissioning of a second head office in Cirencester
In previous years St. James’s Place has purchased carbon credits in order to offset our carbon footprint and achieve ‘carbon neutral company’ status. However, following a review of our environmental strategy in 2015, we are now focusing our efforts on managing our carbon footprint directly, and on stewardship of our funds under management including the environmental implications of those companies in which we invest.
