Environment, Social, Governance

The Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) initiative is an umbrella framework that considers a company’s impact and dependencies on the environment and society, as well as the quality of its corporate governance. At Savanti we are committed to creating a socially and environmentally conscious culture not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s the most powerful force of change in our generation.

How are we driving ESG?

Savanti have assigned an ESG lead who, with the support of the executive team has carried out an assessment of our current maturity levels and areas of highest impact in order to define our core principles, priority initiatives and long-term strategy.
