Net Zero

In 2015 the UN launched their 17 goals for sustainable development. Here at Heap & Partners we use them to help us track all the actions we have so far taken to try to ensure our development is not only sustainable but ultimately leads to net zero. Scroll down to see a list of some of the actions we have taken, both big and small to reach our goal. We believe you have to look at everything, not just the big stuff, to be fully sustainable. We’re publishing this here in the hope it will encourage others to take action too.
