Building a Sustainable Future

The infrastructure we build is vital not only to meeting today’s needs but also to addressing tomorrow's complex challenges. In addition to building infrastructure of the future, we're also committed to reducing our own impact by acting responsibly in every aspect of our business. Our sustainability strategy focuses on two key areas— what we build and how we build it.

How we Build

Meeting our own Sustainability Goals

In addition to providing sustainability solutions for our clients, we're also committed to reducing our own environmental impact by acting responsibly in every aspect of our business. Along with our partners, clients, and leading-edge suppliers, we’re building thriving communities and playing a vital role in the transition to a net-zero economy. Aecon has made significant progress toward achieving one of the most ambitious GHG reduction targets in the construction industry - to reduce our direct CO2 emissions by 30 per cent by 2030 and reach net-zero by 2050. In 2021, we proudly achieved a 15 per cent year-over-year CO2 emissions reduction on an intensity basis and completed a comprehensive GHG inventory, which now includes a scan of indirect (Scope 3) emissions.

Latest Sustainability Initiatives
Operationalizing Sustainability

Aecon is committed to driving positive environmental change.

As we deliver complex projects across Canada and internationally, we work to measure and mitigate the environmental impacts of our own equipment, facilities and processes.

We are focused on:

  • Implementing an enterprise-wide environmental management system
  • Making responsible and conservative use of resources, including energy, water and raw materials 
  • Understanding and reducing potential contributions to climate change and assessing our climate change risks
  • Minimizing waste
  • Respecting biodiversity across terrestrial, aquatic, and marine habitats, especially in protected area
