BWCI pursues its Sustainability Principles throughout all aspects of its operations, as we believe that every business has a part to play in creating a sustainable future. This BWCI Group sustainability commitment has been prepared in that context.

We will be engaging with everyone in the Group in our efforts to focus on three key areas:Reducing the Environmental Impact in our Operations and Facilities
We have been leveraging technology to move to digital operations across our business, thus moving to paperless operations wherever it is efficient to do so. We have also reviewed all our facilities and are implementing energy efficient heating and cooling systems.Reducing Business Travel
While we recognise the importance of in person meetings in satisfying client needs, we have invested in virtual meeting alternatives for use where this is more appropriate in order to reduce business travel.Assisting our clients to consider Environmental, Social and Governance issues
Our consultants advise our clients on a range of ESG issues, including options to invest client assets into investments with better sustainability credentials, recognising the importance of sustainable investment to meeting global net-zero goals.
The BWCI Group has established a Green Group to lead its sustainability initiatives. This Green Group reports directly to BWCI’s Management Group to ensure that the issues are considered at senior management level.
BWCI’s Carbon Footprint will be monitored by the Green Group with an independent assessment by specialist monitoring firm, ESI Monitor. In the future, to the extent that we cannot reduce our Carbon Footprint further, we will offset the residual Carbon Footprint of the Group’s business in order to meet our Climate Pledge.
BWCI is also a Founder Member of the Guernsey Green Forum, a group of leading Guernsey employers which have pledged to collaborate and share knowledge that benefits the local environment and the global community.
