Alongside increasing investment in its people and innovation, AECOM achieved a strong financial performance that exceeded expectations on every key financial metric.

Advancing its leading position for environmental, social and governance (ESG) related services, AECOM launched its Sustainable Legacies strategy to embed sustainable development and resilience across the company’s work, improve social outcomes for communities, achieve net-zero carbon emissions, and enhance its governance.

Additionally, AECOM published its first global ESG report in November 2021 that further details the substantive ESG initiatives within its operations. AECOM introduced Digital AECOM to help clients accelerate their digital journeys and achieve better project outcomes.

Likewise, AECOM furthered its equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives through its commitment to building safe and respectful work environments where everyone can thrive.

Delivering technically-challenging projects 

“We are proud to be once again recognized by Fortune as the World’s Most Admired Company in our industry thanks to the incredible accomplishments by our people to deliver the most technically-challenging projects more innovatively, efficiently and sustainably,” remarks Lara Poloni, AECOM's President.

“As a leading employer, we are further investing in our people through our Freedom to Grow global framework to ensure they have the balance, flexibility, resources and tools they need to do their best work and provide the best of AECOM to our clients.”

Identifying best-regarded companies

Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry on the survey of corporate reputations and determined the best-regarded companies by asking executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products, to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
