Our Commitment to Sustainable Development Goals
We support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which provide a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
The Sustainable Development Goals recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies which improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
We are committed to these goals within our organisation and acknowledge the role we can play in achieving these global objectives.
Our work has impact beyond the project. We contribute to our local communities and wider society through a sustainable and outcome-focused approach – a practice we apply to all aspects of our work.
We design the infrastructure our communities depend upon for livelihood and well-being - inclusive residential developments and community spaces, safe and efficient transport networks, quality education facilities, accessible modern hospitals and medical centres, and justice and correctional facilities that rehabilitate. Our work supports the development of resilient infrastructure projects within the transport, essential services, energy, and maritime sectors – projects which support economic growth and future development.
We champion the drive towards a cleaner, greener world. We undertake projects providing sustainable energy solutions and are actively partnering with global leaders in the renewable energy sector to expand our potential contribution. Our commitment to the climate challenge extends to all facets of our operations, from the way we manage waste and energy use in our offices, through to our project methodology and design principles. We consistently pursue environmentally sustainable design solutions and are industry leaders in building re-use, re-engineering, and urban renewal.
The governance of our organisation and our guiding principles are strongly aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals. Gender equality, inclusivity, freedom from modern slavery, and mental and physical wellbeing are a given within our workplace and an expectation of all those we work with. We have a resolute focus on industry leadership, which we drive through engagement with schools, universities and professional institutions. We are also working towards bridging the gap with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - one of our country’s greatest challenges. The implementation of our Innovate RAP demonstrates our ongoing commitment and journey towards reconciliation, equal opportunity, and self-determination.
As our Firm’s operations and focus evolve over time, so too will the global challenges. The Sustainable Development Goals will continue to guide us and ensure the work we do contributes to a sustainable future.
