In ways that are both devastating and transformational, the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted weaknesses and inequities in the systems that support quality of life and prosperity in our already fragile world. It has led us and our clients to rethink what’s next, reorder priorities and accelerate changes that not only help repair what’s broken, but lead to improved, lasting outcomes. As the world’s premier infrastructure consultancy and a leader in environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), we are determined and well positioned to deliver positive, impactful and sustainable legacies for our company, our communities and our planet. With ESG principles embedded into everything we do, the goal of our Sustainable Legacies strategy is straightforward: to ensure that the work we do in partnership with our clients leaves a positive, lasting impact for communities and our planet. Delivering sustainable legacies is a multi-layered topic. At a micro level, the focus tends to be on sustainability here and now: energy strategies to reduce emissions, offsetting and other mitigation tactics, sustainable development, resiliency, and the creation of a waste-free circular economy. At a macro level sustainability takes a global approach to consumption over the long term in the interests of the planet and the whole of society.
In line with this and reflecting post-pandemic priorities, we have developed four themes of our sustainable legacies strategy: embedding sustainable development and resilience across our work, improving social outcomes (including equity, diversity and inclusion), achieving net-zero carbon emissions and enhancing governance.
