Navigant seeks to identify, promote, and facilitate sustainable business activities to improve the environmental impact of our Firm and our professionals. We know that collective change is driven by individual actions and must be part of our everyday operations.
Navigant currently measures, monitors, and evaluates the environmental impact of everyday business activities and is assessing energy, transportation, and purchased goods & services. We are pleased to share we have joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, were instrumental in developing the Sectoral Decarbonization Approach (SDA) for the Science Based Targets initiative, and serve as a member of the Technical Advisory Group led by the Science Based Target initiative.
We engage employees across the company to help drive our local sustainability efforts. Our active internal sustainability team, comprised of experts in the field of sustainability, partner with employees across the company to build green practices into the culture of Navigant. At an office level, Green Teams work closely with the sustainability team, office operations, and corporate leadership to drive individual and collective changes that make a measurable impact on the environment and make Navigant a more sustainable company.

At Navigant, we believe that a sustainability strategy not only supports the transition towards a sustainable, low carbon society -- it also has strategic importance and the potential to lead to a more valuable and attractive company. That’s why Navigant assesses and reduces its energy and emissions footprint by selecting efficient office spaces, promoting use of public transportation, and strengthening our green procurement.
SCOPE & PROTOCOL
Navigant’s carbon footprint has been developed in line with the requirements provided in the relevant standards of the GHG Protocol; namely the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard, and the GHG Protocol Corporate Value Chain (Scope 3) Accounting and Reporting Standard. We have included all office locations, business travel, and purchased goods in our assessment of environmental emissions, energy, and water-use, as well as waste.
Navigant conducted a water risk assessment using the World Resource Institute (WRI) Aqueduct tool to make a high-level risk assessment of all our offices. An office was considered water-stressed if it was in a location categorized as high risk in the overall current water risk assessment of the Aqueduct tool.
Navigant is using this assessment to apply water reduction easures in all our offices with special attention to those offices in water stressed areas, such as low-flow toilets and water saving measures relating to kitchen devices.
Working on circularity and reducing waste is important to Navigant and to our employees. The company has Green Teams across our offices which are implementing waste reducing measures on a local level. Measures currently implemented include:
