LOS ANGELES — AECOM Technology Corporation published its second annual global sustainability report. The report, titled, “Complex Problems. Integrated Solutions.” demonstrates AECOM’s approach to helping communities and clients around the globe adapt to the ever-changing needs of nature and society.

AECOM views sustainability as helping clients, society and its operations address complex challenges by managing financial, natural, social and human capital that work together to advance human progress with less risk.

“As a visionary company with an incredibly diverse set of skills, we have the opportunity to solve some of the world’s most complex and pressing challenges,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “Making a positive impact in the world remains our top priority, and this report showcases some of the many ways that we incorporate the various aspects of sustainability into our projects, operations and community activities.”

Some of AECOM’s fiscal year 2012 highlights include:
• Being named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere Institute for the third-consecutive year.
• AECOM’s 2012 employee and company donations to charitable and philanthropic organizations globally totaled more thanUS$3.5 million. AECOM employees logged thousands of volunteer hours with its CSR partner organizations in more than 100 countries.
• AECOM became a signatory and participant in the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate responsibility initiative, with more than 8,000 business and non-business participants in 135 countries.

New and ongoing projects featured in the report reflect AECOM’s commitment to create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural and social environments. From winning the master plan design contract for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and Paralympic games to spearheading the largest new construction project in Beijing, the Tongzhou New City, AECOM projects continue to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges.

“I am pleased with the solid progress AECOM made towards its sustainability objectives during the last year, as readers will see in the report,” said Gary Lawrence, AECOM vice president and chief sustainability officer. “We are now more focused than ever on enabling our clients to be successful in the most sustainable ways possible, and we also are applying the same mindset to our own operations and community activities.”
