Green means go

Green means go

Sustainability is fundamental to our business. 

We continually look at our work environment to understand how we consume resources and how we can make our offices – and our lives – greener. In London, we’re saving 76,000 disposable bottles every year through our in-house water bottling machine. In Washington, D.C. we’ve made design and construction choices for our newly renovated space that will help us achieve LEED Gold certification. We pursue sustainability in offices around the world through bike-to-work programs, composting, auto-light sensors and computer shut-offs, e-waste recycle days, and much more.
