Environmental impact

At Slalom, we believe it’s our collective responsibility to be good stewards of the planet. That’s why we’re advancing our own sustainability efforts and scaling our expertise to help our customers do the same.

Carrie Falspohler, a director of talent acquisition for Slalom Atlanta, clears weeds in a local community garden with every bit as much enthusiasm as she applies to hiring new team members to build and shape a better future.

Protecting the environment for future generations directly ties to Slalom’s purpose and core values. We believe embracing sustainability will enable us to improve the health of the planet and help meet the challenges of our customers and communities where we work and live.

Our planet goals

Our 2020-2030 goals seek to minimize Slalom’s operational and supply chain environmental footprint in alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goals for affordable and clean energy, climate action, and responsible consumption and production.

Goal 1

Achieve carbon neutrality in our operations emissions and shift to 100% renewable electricity by 2030.

Goal 2

Implement waste reduction programs across all Slalom offices.

Our decarbonization journey so far

In 2020, we conducted our first environmental impact assessment

We engaged with employees, customers, communities, suppliers, and partners to review our 2019 practices and set a baseline. The assessment affirmed what we were already doing well and revealed significant opportunities for us to improve. 

As a result of the assessment, we set a goal. To embrace sustainability, including achieving carbon-neutral emissions and shifting to 100% renewable energy by or before 2030. 

From volunteering to help clean up local waterways (as shown here in Chicago) to assessing water-stress levels at our permanent office locations, we’re serious about understanding and taking a risk-based approach to mitigating our environmental impact.

In 2021, we joined The Climate Pledge

The Climate Pledge is a call to businesses and organizations to take collective action on the world’s most pressing crisis and work together for a safe and healthy planet for future generations.

As a signatory, Slalom is committed to measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis, implementing decarbonization strategies in line with the Paris Agreement.

Every year, on the first Sunday of March, our Slalom teams join millions of people on Clean Up Australia Day, as communities work together to keep their precious environment pristine.

In 2022, we committed to setting Science-Based Targets

Setting a science-based emissions reduction target will help us develop a greenhouse gas reduction plan that provides a credible path to achieve net-zero emissions.

We also began implementing a greenhouse gas accounting platform that provides a credible path to significant emissions reductions.

Making a meaningful impact, together, is the Slalom way. Slalomers all over the world take pride in giving back. Here team members Ana Karen Perez Garcia and Leanna Dailey pause to smile for the camera during a day of volunteering.

In 2024, our near-term Science-Based Targets were approved by SBTi

The Science Based Targets initiative has validated that the science-based greenhouse gas emissions reductions target(s) submitted by Slalom Inc. conform with the SBTi Criteria and Recommendations (Criteria version 5.1). SBTi has classified Slalom’s scope 1 and 2 target ambition as in line with a 1.5°C trajectory.

Slalom commits to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions 46.2% by 2030 from a 2019 base year. Slalom also commits to reduce scope 3 GHG emissions 55% per FTE within the same timeframe.

Integrating sustainability into business planning allows you to manage risks and add new value in a rapidly changing world. Sustainability challenges you to be a long-term thinker; it fosters a mindset where you consider the impacts of your actions and decisions in the present and the future.
