Building a greener future
Our role in society
By actively reducing our carbon emissions, sourcing the talent needed for the low carbon transition and helping to tackle employment inequity, we have a role to play in building a sustainable future for everyone. At Specialist Staffing Group, we aim to have a positive impact on society beyond simply what our partners achieve. That means delivering positive outcomes for everyone.
Powered by clean energy
We partner with dynamic organizations to build a future powered by clean energy. Our plan is to double the size of our renewables business by 2024 while also reducing our own carbon emissions by 20% in the same timeframe. And we’ve funded a renewable energy social enterprise in Gujarat, India, which finances 9.9MW of wind power and the education and training of women.
