Helping to improve skills, create jobs and grow economies.
In This Section


Enriching the communities also means helping build prosperity in those communities, both through personal and economic growth.  Black & Veatch seeks to improve the skills of individuals, create jobs and grow the economies of the communities we work in across the world.     

Growing Skills

Skills and Knowledge Transfer

Many of our projects across the globe have a built-in ‘skills and knowledge transfer’ component so that engineers in developing countries can operate and improve their facilities.  Examples of this include the theoretical and practical training provided for Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) engineers at the Qassim Power Plant and delivering the USAID Infrastructure Needs Program II to support the Palestinian National Authority its efforts to promote economic growth and create jobs. 


Through the Black & Veatch Foundation we improve access to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, to equip young people with the critical reasoning skills necessary to solve the energy, water and communications problems of the future.

Growing Economies

We seek to deliver economic growth through projects we deliver and the supply chains we work with to deliver them.
