Our Pledges

As a social business engaged in professional advisory services, CCA is committed to a continuous betterment of its own performance when it comes to corporate social and environmental responsibilities.

CCA commits to a set of low carbon environmental policies in our office operations. We also measure and record our operational carbon footprint every year covering scopes 1, 2 and 3 based on ISO 14064 and fully offset the emissions to make our office carbon neutral.

In January 2016, CCA co-signed the Social Caring Pledge. The Pledge is a scheme which recognizes businesses that are committed to the six principles derived from the ethos behind the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) and the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).

In December 2015, CCA joined the Paris Pledge for Action, an appeal which brings together hundreds of non-state actors from across the globe in support of the Paris Agreement on climate change. The Paris Pledge for Action is an initiative of the COP21 French Presidency managed by the University of Cambridge’s Institute for Sustainability Leadership.

In signing the Paris Pledge for Action, CCA is committed to supporting a safe and stable climate in which temperature rise is limited to under 2 degrees Celsius.

CCIL aims to encourage climate innovation which is relevant to local needs and contributes to solving global challenges. This includes climate justice, carbon reduction, resource conservation and action that will assist adaptation and resilience building.
