In 2021, we made progress on our ESG journey, undertaking our first materiality assessment and developing an ESG framework, which helped our leadership begin to move the business in the right direction to better serve stakeholders, society and the environment. By raising our sustainability ambitions and identifying the ESG areas that are most important to us, we are better placed to lead or respond to ESG issues and opportunities that arise from embedding ESG more deeply into our business.
We are committed to the long-term success of our ESG outputs and want to ensure this goes far beyond a tick-box exercise to create greater long-term value that genuinely makes an impact. To this end, we will embed a strong accountability framework through taskforce teams with executive sponsorship, clear metrics and alignment to performance reviews, and, as ever, we will be guided by our core values of partnership, excellence, dynamism and creativity.
Numis is in a unique position where we speak to a number of the world’s largest investors and senior leaders of companies daily. We’re able to facilitate and contribute to conversations on the sustainability agenda. We will continue to commit to these conversations and further leverage our strong relationships to advise clients and share our insights.
