LGC publishes ESG report for 2020-21

LGC’s latest environmental, social and governance (ESG) report is now available, covering the period of 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021.

This is LGC’s first ESG report using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, the most widely used sustainability reporting framework globally.

Euan O'Sullivan, LGC’s President and Chief Executive Officer, explained, “Using the GRI Standards represents an important step in how we: disclose consistent and credible ESG data to our customers, shareholders and wider stakeholders; track and compare our performance year-on-year both internally and with peers; and share our success and drive improvements.

"We recently announced that we are committing to being carbon net zero by 2050, and for next year’s report, we will further expand the scope of our reporting across more ESG topics and include company-wide data on topics such as our carbon footprint and energy usage.”

The ESG report includes data relating to: LGC’s people – including employee numbers, employee well-being and diversity; environmental performance – including energy, greenhouse gas emissions and water; responsible business – including cyber security, quality and health and safety.
