Welcome to our 2017 Sustainability Report
Today, 54% of the world’s population resides in cities. By 2050, this number will likely rise to more than 70%. These burgeoning cities need to be low carbon, low impact, resource efficient and in harmony with natural systems if they’re to grow in a sustainable manner. At SNC-Lavalin, we’re proud to deliver technology-enriched services and solutions that help urban environments and their residents thrive.
We’re learning to harness the power of digital technologies to strengthen our commitment to sustainability. We’re leveraging these technologies to improve the efficiency and sustainability of both our engineering designs and our operations.
Our focus is on equipping cities with smart infrastructure, energy and mobility while contributing to local community prosperity and capacity building. At the same time, we continue to reduce our own resource use, waste streams and carbon footprint, and embed sustainability into our decisions, processes and projects.
This report highlights elements of our sustainability journey in 2017.
