AECOM Sustainable Legacies, Sustainability

The world has changed, and so have we. From navigating the pandemic to increasingly complex global issues, we understand both the urgency of the challenges facing our society and our responsibility to respond in an impactful and enduring way.

As a result, our brand has evolved. We’re excitied to share how we’ve built on our vision, beliefs and core values to reflect where we see ourselves today, and where we’re going.

The foundation of who we are is our purpose: delivering a better world. It unites our organization and has always been clear. It also drove the development of Sustainable Legacies, our recently introduced strategy for reaching bold environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives that make a positive impact on our company, our communities and our planet.

“Our purpose unites us as professionals, aligns us with the ambitions we share with our clients and defines the sustainable legacies and opportunities we are creating through the impact of our work,” said Chief Executive Officer Troy Rudd.

As our company evolves, so do the values that shape our culture and guide how we work. In partnering with clients to turn their ambitions into action, we are sharpening our focus on digital transformation, sustainability, and equity, diversity and inclusion. Our refreshed core values reinforce our commitment to managing our business with the utmost responsibility and always striving for better.

  • Safeguard – We operate ethically and with integrity, while prioritizing safety and security in all that we do.
  • Innovate – We think without limits and embrace new ideas, shaping digital solutions to help clients address current and future challenges.
  • Collaborate – We connect unrivaled expertise from around the world to anticipate and solve our clients’ most pressing challenges.
  • Deliver – We grow our business through relentless client focus, operational excellence and exceptional project execution.
  • Sustain – We take action to make a positive impact on the planet, enrich the communities we touch and build legacies for future generations.
  • Thrive – We build diverse teams, create an inclusive workplace and provide opportunities where each one of our people can reach their full potential.

You’ll see these changes reflected in our visual identity, which in line with the issues our clients and society are concerned about is greener and more natural than before. We’ve also developed a signature graphic that’s circular shape conveys our shared journey, representing our inclusive, collaborative global community working together to deliver a better world.

Together, we’re nearly 50,000 planners, designers, engineers, scientists, consultants and program and construction managers who believe in a world where infrastructure creates opportunity for everyone – uplifting communities, improving access and sustaining our planet. While we may look a little different and sound a little different, we continue to be the world’s trusted infrastructure consulting firm.

At AECOM, we’re delivering a better world. And we hope you’ll join us on this journey.
