Environmental Management System
We’ve had an environmental management system program for more than a decade. ISO 14001:2015 certified for our global headquarters, it’s how we hold ourselves accountable—a “plan-do-check-act” management construct that allows us to effectively and systematically identify and manage the parts of our operations that have the greatest impact on the environment.
For Booz Allen, that’s our greenhouse gas emissions and an ongoing desire to reduce that impact across our operations. Our focus areas include our facilities’ energy use, commuting, business travel, waste management, IT operations, and purchasing.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Over the past 10 years, we have been calculating our carbon footprint with increasing maturity and granularity, ensuring a full understanding and recognition of our impact. In 2015, we set targets to reduce our scope 2 emissions per square foot and scope 2 emissions per employee by 15% using a 2014 baseline by 2026 and achieved both goals well ahead of schedule. In 2021 we announced our commitment to set firmwide emissions targets in line with climate science that will enable us to achieve net zero GHG emissions by 2050.
