We embrace sustainability by striving to make a positive, lasting impact on society and the environment.

Sustainability is at the core of what we do and how we operate—focusing on the environmental, social and governance impact of our business. Through our projects and our operations, we have both a significant opportunity and a responsibility to protect, enhance and restore the world’s natural and social systems. 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, resilience, risk reduction and provides attractive project life cycle returns on investment.

AECOM Sustainability Actions

Committing to Excellence

Having achieved our previous emissions reduction targets ahead of schedule, we have set new science-based targets for 2025 that are in alignment with the Paris Agreement’s goals to limit the worst effects of climate change: a 20% reduction in Scope 1 and 2 emissions and a 10% reduction in supply chain emissions from our 2018 baseline. Our new targets have been independently approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) and, at the time of approval, AECOM was the first and only U.S.-based company in the engineering and construction sector to have set approved targets. Key actions to achieve our emissions target include phasing out inefficient fleet vehicles, pursuing vehicle emissions reduction technology options, right-sizing our real estate portfolio, investing in office energy efficiency and purchasing more renewable energy.

Resilient Reef

Resilient Reef funds long-term resilience planning, capacity building and implementation across five World Heritage reef sites. We are the Implementation Partner for this global program and will support five World Heritage coral reefs to develop resilience strategies over the next four years.

EBRD

We are supporting the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) to deliver environmental action plans in cities across Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The plans provide a roadmap of priority actions to improving the cities’ environmental performance as well as informing EBRD’s investment planning in the city.
