Our performance

ERM operates with a number of important guiding principles and values. These important values remain the foundation of our culture and the engine that drives our sustainability performance.   

Business conduct and ethics 
 
Applying our Business Conduct and Ethics commitments across every ERM office and activity, every day, depends upon the involvement and awareness of individual employees and leaders.

Environmental footprint 

We recognize the need to continue improving our own environmental performance through the effective management of our offices and assets, business activities and client project work. Environment is a key focus area within the UN Global Compact and, as a signatory, we strive to embrace its core values and promote them within our sphere of influence.

Managing risks
 
We exercise judgment with respect to the clients and third parties we engage with and the types of work we do. We will not work with clients or contractors who do not share our commitment to high ethical standards and have turned down project opportunities because of concerns involving human rights violations and other ethical issues.
