Grant Thornton receives Business Working Responsibly mark for sustainability
Grant Thornton Ireland is delighted to have received the Business Working Responsibly mark from Business in the Community Ireland today. Sustainability is core to everything Grant Thornton Ireland does, and as Grant Thornton continues to grow, so does its sustainability initiatives across every service line and area of the business.
Among the initiatives taken to support sustainability across the firms offices, Grant Thornton Ireland’s Green Scene Committee has engaged in tree-planting, sustainable mobility for employees, and promotion of the bike to work scheme. The Future of Work initiative incorporates sustainable working methods across all stages, and the introduction of sustainable coffee cups and coffee bean recycling have further supported a culture of responsibility in this area across the business.
Speaking on the receipt of the Business Working Responsibly mark, Michael McAteer, Managing Partner at Grant Thornton Ireland said, “ We are delighted to be the recipients of the Business Working Responsibly mark today, recognising the crucial role that businesses across Ireland play in creating a positive impact on the local community and wider environment .
“We know that every step we take to address the climate and environment crisis we all face in our communities will go a long way to supporting a sustainability-oriented culture across our teams, and we’re committed to further developing these initiatives to have the greatest possible positive impact.
‘To that end, we are delighted to announce that Grant Thornton Ireland is currently recruiting a full-time resource to head up our sustainability programme across the firm.’
