Sustainability is a strategic imperative for Control Risks and an integral part of our Code of Ethics. Sustainability is central to our concept of corporate resilience and of being a well-governed business. Driving our sustainability forward we have five focus areas:  


Integrity and ethics - Integrity and ethics is a defining feature of the way we do business. We strive to lead by example by applying the highest standards of integrity and ethics in our work and operations.  

Labour and human rights – We are committed to exemplifying the highest human rights standards through consistent best practice in our engagement with employees, clients and the communities we work with.  

Cyber and data protection – We provide a market-leading level of assurance and digital security to clients, employees and partners.  

Greenhouse gas emissions and carbon footprint - Control Risks is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the UK government’s legally binding target and reducing our carbon footprint.  

Diversity, equity, inclusion and social mobility – We strive to be a diverse, inclusive, meritocracy where all our people feel included and that they can succeed based on nothing other than their talent, behaviour, work ethic and dedication to the firm and our clients.  


Striving for Net Zero  

Control Risks is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, in line with the UK government’s legally binding target and reducing our carbon footprint.  

We will work towards this through an ongoing programme of decarbonisation focus areas:

We measure the impact of our actions and commit to continually improve our practices, publishing outcomes in our Global Greenhouse Gas Annual Report.  


The United Nations Global Compact  

Control Risks has participated in the UN Global Compact since 2007. This is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.  

To demonstrate our on-going commitment and development in these areas, we annually submit a Communication on Progress with particular focus on respecting human rights and countering corruption.
