Running a business responsibly is key to its long-term sustainability: all decisions we make have consequences for society.
Sustainability helps us ensure that those consequences are positive, adding value for our clients and the communities we work in. Our vision is to be a leading global partner in advancing sustained economic, social and environmental wellbeing.
Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond meeting clients’ requirements and complying with regulations at the local, state, provincial or national levels.
Whether we’re reducing greenhouse gas emissions, developing new ways to conserve water or promoting renewable energy, our commitment to sustainability drives innovation, resiliency, reduces risk and provides attractive project life cycle returns on investment.
