LGC publishes ESG report for 2021-22

LGC’s latest environmental, social and governance (ESG) report is now available, covering the period of 1 April 2021 – 31 March 2022.

This is LGC’s second 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, “Last year, I shared our first ESG report using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) reporting framework. This new way of reporting highlighted that whilst we were already doing many important activities that support our ESG agenda, the scale of the challenge is such that we must continue to do more.

This year, I instructed the business to focus on delivering tangible actions on the ESG topics which matter most to our stakeholders and continued commercial success. This includes our carbon net zero target and the setting of clear ESG Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).”

This year we have continued to expand the breadth and depth of our reporting, with data relating to:

  • Our people – including employee numbers, employee well-being and diversity;
  • Our environmental performance – including energy, greenhouse gas emissions, water and hazardous waste
  • Responsible business practices – including health and safety, quality, responsible procurement, business ethics and cyber security.
