I invite you to download our 2023 Sustainability Strategy and Report, and explore in detail Cpl’s commitments to sustainability.
As an ever-evolving company, we aim to update and amend our approach to sustainability on an annual basis. We will continue to rely on our instinct for excellence and to listen to our people and clients in pursuit of ever more impactful ways of achieving our goals of creating a better world for us all.
Let’s all work together to make a world worth living in.
At Cpl our vision is to be the world’s best at transforming our clients and candidates through sustainable transformational talent solutions & experiences. To Cpl, sustainability means being an exemplar for good sustainable business practices, by creating a positive impact on society, the environment, our people, and our economy.
Our Sustainability Strategy is informed by the results of a double materiality assessment conducted in 2023. This assessment allowed Cpl to identify the most important issues for Cpl’s business, and the impact our business has on society, the environment, our people, and the economy. It was created from a review of Cpl policies and sustainability documents, stakeholder interviews, a companywide survey and from a workshop with our GreenWorks Committee. The realisation of this vision is supported by 3 strategic pillars: Future Ready, Client First and Total Solutions.
We will be at the leading edge of the future of work in a climate affected world, to enable our clients, candidates, colleagues, and our communities to be future ready. Cpl will achieve this through collaborative networks of ‘think & do’ leadership, a focus on co-creation, the continued development of the Future of Work Institute and a net beneficial approach to the environments in which we operate.
We will design and deploy real-world-ready integrated solutions across the talent spectrum that will create transformational value, appropriate to the needs of our clients and our candidates. To achieve this, we will be an exceptional employer and create equal opportunities for all our stakeholders.
We will be strategic and ethical in how we work with our clients and create new experiences to fully understand how we can transform our clients’ businesses through a broad range of sustainable services and supports. We will be a lighthouse for new thinking and new approaches to modern leadership.
Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future". The SDGs emphasise the interconnected environmental, social and economic aspects of sustainable development, by putting sustainability at their centre. The output of our 2023 materiality assessment identified 5 primary objectives in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that have the greatest impact on our business and where we believe we can make the most difference. These 5 SDGs, along with our 3 strategic pillars,above, have formed the basis of our sustainability strategy.3

Our commitments are aligned with our responsibilities to our strategic pillars of Future Ready, Client First, & Total Solutions to help ensure a positive impact on society, the environment, our people, and our economy.
