Our environmental sustainability

MannionDaniels’ mission is to work for an equitable, inclusive, and sustainable world.

We believe that caring for the environment is part of our work in health and equality and we aim to protect the natural world in everything we do.

MannionDaniels recognises the significant environmental sustainability challenges facing the world today, such as the triple planetary crisis of climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss. We are committed to finding ways to reduce and neutralise our contribution to these issues through our business operations and practices.

What we’re doing

  • In line with the UN’s Race to Zero, we have pledged to half our emissions by 2030 and achieve net zero before 2050. Our MannionDaniels Annual Carbon Report outlines our carbon footprint, reduction strategy, and compensation scheme for the 2021 reporting year.
  • Prior to establishing 2019 as our baseline emissions year, we recorded our total CO2 emissions from staff flights every year since 2014. We invested the total sum of these in sustainable energy projects, which are selected by our staff. Find out more about the projects supported on our Community Programmes page.
  • All of our UK offices are now supplied by renewable energy and maintained by environmentally friendly cleaning services.
  • A proactive and dedicated group of internal environmental champions support our environmental strategy and action plan, including driving engagement and communications around sustainability across colleagues, departments, and offices.

More information on our environmental commitments and actions can be found in our Environmental Policy and green credentials below.

In late 2022, MannionDaniels also launched mdsustain – a new service to support organisations and businesses to become more environmentally sustainable. mdsustain’s packages, guidance, tools and support enable organisations to reduce their environmental footprint and make a positive impact on the planet.
