Sustainability and Citizenship

Opportunities to overcome our world's greatest challenges together.

Sustainability and Citizenship

We are achieving a better and more sustainable future for all by thinking and acting together. 
Infrastructure underlies the fabric of life and business. At Black & Veatch, we create new possibilities for humanity through how we deliver innovation in infrastructure. This is backed by a culture that has stayed true since our foundation in 1915, enriching communities where we work and live. 

Safety, sustainability and responsibility are ingrained into every Black & Veatch professional, and designed into all projects.

We remain committed to a journey that integrates sustainability into everything we do, shaping the future of our business alongside improved environmental and social outcomes. Learn of our progress across three key areas:


We have several initiatives to help our professionals, and the local leaders, and talent we hire to execute major projects, to be safe and healthy, both at work and beyond.

Enabling your Journey to Sustainable Solutions

By installing and managing our own microgrid in our World Headquarters, Black & Veatch professionals are able to evaluate the latest energy technologies and resources as part of its ongoing operation. This means our energy experts can more effectively serve clients who plan to install and test these advanced new energy systems. As an added benefit, Black & Veatch is reducing its energy costs while providing its engineers with hands-on experience with these innovative technologies.

We seek partners in innovation. Let's start the conversation
