Environmental, Social and Governance
The environmental and social impacts from our direct operations predominantly relate to the resources we consume in our offices, data centres, and from our business travel and purchased goods and services. 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. In FY2022, the Plan was updated in line with current technical guidance, industry trends and Macquarie’s ambition to achieve Net Zero emissions.
Our FY2025 strategy is structured around five key pillars, aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a practical and operational strategy, the 2025 Sustainability Plan reflects our commitment to further create a positive social and environmental impact across our global premises, data centres and supply chain to reflect best practice.
Our steps to reduce resource consumption include energy efficiency measures, data centre virtualisation and waste recycling 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.
