Our customers are tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges. They are delivering cleaner energy. They are building resilient infrastructure in the face of climate change.
They are working to safeguard natural resources, decrease their environmental footprint, and create greater digital connectivity for all.
“When we design and build a project, we are focusing on helping our customers create a lasting positive legacy that includes protecting the environment, creating economic growth and development, and partnering with communities.” - Brendan Bechtel
Bechtel is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and we are currently in the process of setting interim targets that align with the findings of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
We are intent on reducing emissions first (not offsetting), followed by carbon removal in order to counteract any remaining emissions as we get closer to our goal.
We are also committed to aligning with our customers and working with our partners and suppliers to ensure we, and the industry, achieve sustainable results.
Next to mitigation, adaptation is one of society’s top challenges, and we believe that poor infrastructure, both physical and natural, undermines a society’s ability to develop and grow in a sustainable way.
Our customers are searching for customised solutions to adsorb natural hazards while still retaining essential infrastructure and its intended services. We design, build, and restore to help societies not only adapt and recover faster, but also to build back stronger, greener and more resilient.
