"I feel privileged to be working for an organization that prioritizes the planet and gives me the opportunity to get involved and really make a difference - not only as an individual but on a global scale where Clarivate can really make an impact through our innovation and technology leadership."

Jamie Francis, Customer Success Manager, Make a Difference to Climate Change Team Leader

It takes creativity, initiative and resolve to take care of our planet and preserve natural resources. At both the company and individual level, we’re committed to doing our part and to doing what’s right in order to leave this world a whole lot better for generations to come. We’re doing this by making eco-efficiency a top priority – from our mailroom to our boardroom, our home offices and beyond. We’re contributing our time, knowledge and resources to help those trying to solve some of the world’s most complex environmental issues. Sometimes many small changes can build big outcomes. While we’ve made some progress towards reaching our goal of being carbon neutral by 2024, we are ready to accelerate our actions and initiatives in order to achieve the results we can all celebrate and be proud of. We’re continuing to identify and implement sustainable, eco-efficient choices into every part of our business – from our daily operations and energy footprint to advancing our sustainable supply chain strategy.
