6.4 / 10

(based on 22 ratings in 2018)


"There are not many clear initiatives for reducing the carbon footprint other than things such as the cycle-to-work scheme."
Graduate, Aberdeen
"One of our chosen charities is 'Trees for Cities'."
Graduate, Manchester
"The organisation has recently set up an internal group to push forward initiatives such as recycling and corporate social responsibility. The organisation now recycles in every single office."
Graduate, Glasgow
"Certain departments are moving towards completely paperless systems, although this is not office-wide. There are also schemes in place to encourage cycling to work, although this is not massively advertised."
Graduate, Southampton
"RSM tries to get staff to share cars when they can. Apart from this there seems to be very little that is obvious in terms of portraying the company's commitment."
Entry level, Bury St Edmunds
"There is an appointed corporate responsibility officer who monitors green initiatives."
Private Client, Graduate, Basingstoke


"There is limited communication around reducing the company's carbon footprint."
Consulting, Graduate, London
"The company could do more. There is recycling but it's not well advertised and I think there should be a recycling bin next to every waste bin. Recycling is not actively encouraged. There is a lot of wasted paper from excessive printing and I think more could be done online."
Graduate, Liverpool / Chester
"We are yet to go paperless, but are very big on recycling."
Graduate, City of London
"The company is not very green at all as we have too many paper files."
Graduate, Manchester
"We have recycling bins and facilities throughout the whole office and there is some encouragement to recycle."
Graduate, Reading


"It does provide workplace benefits such as the cycle to work scheme, which offers bikes to employees on a reduced cost basis"
Graduate, Guildford
"They have a tree planting scheme that people can get involved in."
Graduate, london
"They encourage cycling and car share schemes when commuting to work."
Graduate, London


"There are collection points to aid in reducing recyclable waste, as well as energy saving monitors. However I believe more could be done to raise awareness e.g. screens letting us know how much energy is used in the building."
Graduate, Gatwick/Crawley
"There are lots of recycling initiatives and we are discouraged from printing where possible."
Graduate, Newcastle
"Baker Tilly constantly tries to find ways to reduce its carbon footprint and we constantly get emails with updates."
Entry level, Manchester
