Our Impact on the Environment

At Stewart, we are invested in learning how to expand our efforts to positively affect the environment and set the right benchmarks and goals to track this. Our Environmental Management Committee, launching in 2022, will work to establish goals for the company in conjunction with leadership.

The EMC will focus on these areas: 

  • Gather a comprehensive assessment of all owned and leased spaces with a goal of reporting on all spaces with available environmental information
  • Set benchmarks for net zero carbon
  • Understand the impact COVID-19 has had on the company’s energy usage, waste management and GHG emissions.

With these, the Environmental Management Committee will be able to make recommendations for reducing the company’s environmental impact.
