Can we pick our clients for their ecological credentials?
(07-22-2020, 02:08 PM)JacquiMachin Wrote: Hi, there was an interesting question in the chat that I thought I could kick off here,
"in your experience is the value chain a two way conversation yet - i.e. is PWC yet at the point where they will tell clients if they don't improve their ecological performance they may not be suitable clients for you to engage with?"
A great question - it is much easier for us to be able to pick our suppliers (and work with them to improve their environmental performance)! However, working with clients that have seriously negative impacts does pose a reputational risk to us, and I have seen us turn down or decide not to bid on work for this reason. We could always do more though and it's something I think about a lot - where should we draw the line - can we have more (net) positive impact in helping a bad business get better than in helping a good business stay good?
Would love to know others' thoughts on this!
Hi, Jacqui
at PFE we have delivered GHG Reporting and Carbon Reporting (SECR) to a large number of clients but only one's who are captured within the regulatory framework. It would be great to see more take up the option of reporting voluntarily and I would encourage people to do so. We try to educate organisations so they can deliver their own reporting as the process of data collection and analysis really helps you understand where your organisations environmental impact is. Do you think large organisations have a responsibility to drive awareness through their supply chain so people really begin to enact change?
