By bringing together the best people, ideas, and technical expertise, we partner with clients to turn their ambitions into action, and we embrace our core values—Deliver, Collaborate, Innovate, Sustain, Thrive and Safeguard—in everything we do.

Think and Act Globally

AECOM is at its best when we collaborate globally to bring our unrivaled expertise, capabilities and innovation to bear for each of our clients. This focus is at the heart of our Think and Act Globally strategy, launched in November 2020, which guides our teams and business in achieving our strategic objectives and setting new standards of excellence in the professional services industry.

Think and Act Globally

With ESG principles embedded into everything we do, the goal of our Sustainable Legacies strategy is straightforward: to ensure that the work we do in partnership with our clients leaves a positive, lasting impact for communities and our planet. Our approach to sustainability includes engaging team members across every part of our organization to find collaborative ways to achieve the highest environmental, social, and governance standards.

At AECOM, delivering sustainable legacies is at the core of how we operate, and a key element of our Sustainable Legacies strategy is our net zero targets. Additionally, we are committed to reporting our carbon reductions transparently, in line with best practice. We annually disclose to CDP on climate change risk, scoring above the industry average, and we have also released our first global ESG report, in line with the SASB and TCFD frameworks.

Digital innovative approaches

As a part of AECOM’s sphere of innovation, Digital AECOM is an expanding ecosystem of tools, systems, and processes — and a team of over 2,000 digital practitioners who understand both the urgency of the challenges facing the infrastructure industry, and our responsibility to respond in an impactful and enduring way.

Equity, diversity and inclusion

Equity, diversity and inclusion

Fundamental to our ability to achieve our goals and deliver for our clients is our ability to attract, recruit and retain the industry’s best, diverse talent by offering a compelling employee value proposition that promises competitive pay and benefits, flexibility and a foundation for learning and career growth, an inclusive culture that supports well-being and encourages collaboration and innovation, and a shared commitment to our values and purpose.

Safeguarding our people

In recognition of the right to a safe and healthy working environment, keeping our people and stakeholders safe is our most important measure of success. These incident prevention efforts have continued to advance our journey toward a “zero” incident culture. Within fiscal year 2021, our Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) in our Professional Services businesses improved by 40% over the previous four fiscal years while our Lost Workday Case Rate (LWCR) improved by 50% over the same period.

Reduction in LWCR since FY'18
