United Nations - Sustainabale Development Goals Logo

To guide global efforts toward sustainable development, the United Nations has articulated 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Given the complexity of today’s social, economic and environmental challenges, actors across society - governments, nonprofits, businesses and civil society organizations - all have an important role to play in advancing these goals.

Aecon embraces our responsibility to contribute to a more prosperous and sustainable future. We track our contributions to the SDGs where we believe we can have the greatest impact given the nature of our work and our priorities as an organization.

What we Build
and How we Build

We work with our clients to deliver infrastructure projects that are driving the transition to a net zero future. We do so through a single point of entry called Aecon Sustainability Solutions. Aecon continues to focus on achieving its GHG emissions reduction goals, including a 30% reduction in direct CO2 emissions (scopes 1 and 2) by 2030 as compared to 2020 and net zero (scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 2050, which are intensity-based targets based on economic output and represent tonnes of CO2 per million dollars of revenue. Aecon’s GHG emissions per revenue was unchanged relative to 2021, maintaining a 14% reduction since 2020 and remaining on track to achieve its target of a 30% reduction in scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030.



Aecon is committed to complying with all regulatory requirements, minimizing environmental impacts from our activities, and preventing pollution across the jurisdictions in which we operate.
