We recognise that economic, social and environmental issues and impacts should be considered as part of good business practice and embedded in our values.
In all of our business processes and procedures we consider our impact on our staff, our clients and the communities in which we live and work and we aim to set standards for others to follow.
Corporate responsibility permeates all areas of our organisation from the main board we guide and direct our managers throughout the business and embrace Corporate Responsibility in all that we do.
Current trends in CSR and sustainability reporting involve responsible behavior throughout the lifecycle of every aspect of a business, increased transparency regarding how a company operates its business, promotion of employee engagement and discussions around the challenges of a growing population and urbanization. With these trends in mind, our CSR efforts focus on five strategic areas:
Community development: Supporting opportunities to contribute to, and make visible, a positive and material impact in the communities where we work and live.
Education and training: Enhancing global engineering and science resources through training, education, scholarships, and internships; participating in association-sponsored events and academic engagements; as well as delivering education to urban and under-served communities.
Basic human needs: Providing basic needs in local communities through individual volunteer and company-sponsored events for post-disaster recovery and long-term alleviation of conditions of poverty (e.g., providing drinking water; design, construction and repair of housing, medical facilities and schools; food donations, and education supplies).
Health and well-being: Promoting and protecting the health and wellness of our employees and the communities where we live and work.
Natural environment: Enhancing and protecting natural capital, conserving environmental resources and modeling sustainable practices through activities such as planting and preserving trees; cleaning rivers, lakes and shorelines; promoting clean air; and supporting diversity in wildlife.
