AECOM is at the forefront of sustainable practices

AECOM's 2024 Sustainability Report highlights the company's ongoing and unwavering commitment to delivering a better world.

Committed to embedding sustainability and resilience

Since launching its Sustainable Legacies strategy, AECOM has taken bold action as an enterprise to put sustainability and resilience at the forefront of its business, and to leave a positive and lasting impact on people and the planet, through its work.

"With accelerating investments in global infrastructure, sustainability, and the energy transition, we remain steadfast in our core commitments to continue to embed sustainability and resilience in our project work, improve social outcomes, achieve net-zero emissions, and enhance our governance," shares AECOM President, Lara Poloni.
