Environmental, Social and Governance
The environmental impacts from our direct operations predominantly relate to the resources we consume in our offices, data centres, and from our business travel. At Macquarie, we seek to manage these impacts by monitoring and reducing resource use, maintaining carbon neutrality, improving the sustainability of our supply chain and occupying and creating innovative and sustainable workplaces, through the implementation of our 2025 Sustainability Plan.
Since 2010, we have reduced our energy use and maintained our carbon neutral commitment. The 2025 Sustainability Plan presents an opportunity to further create a positive social and environmental impact across our operations.
Our steps to reduce resource consumption include energy efficiency measures, data centre virtualisation, waste recycling and water management programs across our global operations.
Through our focus on occupying sustainable workplaces we aim to design and construct new premises in line with sustainability best practice and, where possible, achieve accreditation such as 6 Star Green Star, LEED Platinum, BREEAM Excellent or equivalent.
