About three years ago, we committed to reduce our footprint as early talent recruiters. The result of that decision was the founding of the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance. We’re beginning to stem the decades of damage that our early talent practices have caused to the environment. Our purpose is to help reduce the carbon footprint of early talent professionals. Our mission is to create and empower a deeply connected ecosystem of stakeholders, including early talent recruiters, universities, and student organisations, who are committed to reducing their collective carbon footprint and embedding sustainability at the heart of their practices.
