Consulting firm A.T. Kearney plans to go carbon-neutral within two years. The company said carbon-neutrality will apply to all aspects of its global operations; both internal and client-facing activities; and is one part of a larger sustainability effort being launched across the firm’s offices in 33 countries.

The company is developing a series of “alternative delivery mechanisms” the firm’s consultants can use for providing consulting services in a more “sustainable and environmentally friendly way.” Efforts will focus on reducing the frequency of business travel and using collaborative technology to maintain the firm’s collaborative working style in a more sustainable fashion.

“The travel inherent in the consulting industry gives it a disproportionately large carbon footprint compared with many other professional services organizations,” said Paul Laudicina, managing officer and chairman of A.T. Kearney. “As our clients increasingly make sustainability commitments to their stakeholders, we are dedicated to doing all we can to help them maintain those commitments when utilizing consulting services.”
