Climate change is threatening our ability to achieve our mission—to improve the quality of life and economic well-being of people worldwide. It causes operational and programmatic disruptions and can limit the effectiveness of our work and lessen our impact if we don’t build our solutions with climate as a consideration.
Clients are rapidly expanding their outlooks and requirements, asking their contractors and suppliers, how are you contributing to slowing climate change?
Abt’s First Climate Office
Abt has been reducing our carbon footprint for over a decade. And in July 2022 we formally established our first Climate Office with the charge of catalyzing, incubating, and accelerating climate-readiness across Abt. This and the appointment of Abt’s first Chief Climate Officer, Eric Reading, are significant milestones. They represent a whole-of-Abt approach to addressing the climate crisis. We apply ambitious climate solutions to our internal operations, just as we do for our clients in our work globally.
