Sustainability at Jacobs means ensuring long-term business resilience and success while positively contributing toward the economy, society and the environment.

Through our PlanBeyond programme, we are inspired to make a positive environmental, societal and economic difference for businesses, governments and communities around the world — from the way we operate our business, to the work we perform with clients and other organisations.

We advance innovations that improve energy efficiency, resilience, conservation, reuse and reclamation of vital air, land and water resources. In FY2018, we reduced carbon emissions by more than 37 million tons in Value+ Savings on client projects, equivalent to a full year’s energy use by 4 million homes. In addition, the former CH2M business exceeded its 5-year commitment to reduce operational greenhouse gas emissions by 25%, ultimately achieving a 29% reduction since 2012.

“PlanBeyond is our approach to sustainability. It’s about planning beyond today for a sustainable future for everyone. For us, this means social and economic progress while protecting our environment and improving resilience. It is also about being the employer of choice for our people and being the go-to solutions provider for a more connected, sustainable world.”

Steve Demetriou, Jacobs Executive Chair
