L.E.K. Consulting is committed to environmental sustainability. In order to mitigate carbon emissions created as we deliver impact to our clients, we purchase voluntary offsets through a partnership with U.K.-based climate and development experts, ClimateCare. By purchasing offsets through ClimateCare, we help advance projects around the world that meet the highest international quality standards in protecting the environment and improving lives.
We don’t stop at purchasing offsets--at L.E.K., we strive to reduce emissions. In many of our offices, we have adapted building management, IT management and administration to be more environmentally friendly.
- Building management: Reduce emissions from each L.E.K. office by reviewing energy suppliers, switching to low-power light bulbs, and optimizing heating and cooling cycles.
- IT management: Encourage responsible use of personal computers and IT equipment. This includes very simple steps like turning computers off overnight and defaulting to double-sided printing.
- Administration: Reduce office supply consumption through increased recycling and the use of recycled and sustainable sourced paper
Additionally, we have Green Committees, comprised of consulting staff and members of our core services teams in many of our U.S. offices. The Green Committees in our Boston, New York and Chicago offices organize a variety of initiatives and events to make L.E.K. a greener work environment as well as volunteer events that allow us to give back to local environmental organizations.
