Insite Spring 2021 Issue: ESG Update

The SIQ ESG Plan is focused on five areas

Energy Management & Efficiency (EM&E)- Mike Taylor

Throughout these past few months, the ESG Council, co-chaired by Deb Amberg and David Dean and including members of the senior leadership team, have been working behind the scenes to set the ESG strategy and build the framework for our actions and expected outcomes in each of these critical areas.
Some progress highlights to date:
  • Formation of an EM&E Council, who has been meeting for several weeks and has begun the process of planning for consistent customer dashboards, and a process for capturing and communicating our GHG impact across all of our business units.
  • The formation of a DE&I Council of Champions, comprised of 25 SIQ teammates, will be instrumental in building a strategic vision and action plan for our¬†initiatives and lead the way in stewarding them through the organization. Meetings kick off later this month.
  • Launched KnowBe4, a cybersecurity awareness campaign during the month of March.
  • Rolled out Subcontractor Qualifications, a process to gather data about our subcontractors and their backgrounds. Currently, 16 subcontractors have already completed the qualification process, covering over $40M of our subcontract spend.
