Sustainability and Citizenship

We are achieving a better and more sustainable future for all by thinking and acting together. 

At Black & Veatch, we are committed to continuous improvement for our friends, families, neighbors, clients and communities. Sustainability is engrained into our strategy, our company's purpose, our work with clients, our operations and our culture: every employee-owner of the company.

Mitigating and adapting to climate change, decarbonizing supply chains, protecting our water, creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce are just some of the challenges we are committed to addressing head on. Together with our clients, partners and investors, our work designing and building tomorrow's infrastructure will play a powerful role in improving sustainable outcomes.

We share the conviction that open and transparent business practices, partnerships and innovation in sustainable infrastructure will help us deliver on our mission, and help our clients achieve the outcomes they seek.
