The word ‘cairn’ comes from the Scottish Gaelic word càrn – a man-made pile of stones. Cairns have been built around the world since the prehistoric age.  

Cairns act as navigation aids and can provide shelter and protection. Adding a stone is a mark of respect and protects the cairn’s integrity to benefit future generations. 

At Cairn Risk we help clients to navigate the energy transition safely, with respect and integrity, and with the goal of protecting people, plant and the planet. 

Just like adding stones to a cairn, we strive to share our knowledge and experience and put something back for the greater good. 


Our biggest contribution to sustainability is through the work we do with our clients to enable the energy transition in a safe and ethical way.

Internally we are also committed to sustainability meeting the needs of people, society and the environment. We implement best practices across:

  • Diversity, equality and inclusion
  • Occupational health and safety, and mental health and well-being
  • Environmental protection and waste management
  • Anti-bribery and anti-money laundering
  • Ethical business standards
  • Local community support

We fully support the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
