The UN's SDGs are embedded across our business. We recognise our responsibility to work towards meeting them – and social outcomes are key to sustainable development.
This is why we have designed our social outcomes framework to align with the SDGs, not just to demonstrate our commitment to this important international agenda, but to integrate the social aspects of sustainable development in our projects and operations.
We look upon the SDGs not just as opportunities to address big global issues, notably climate change, but as opportunities to put people and communities at the centre of infrastructure design.
Our specialists work closely with clients in many and diverse countries to help them strengthen civil societies, empower women and deliver social protection programmes. We also work with developers and financiers of global infrastructure projects to safeguard social and human rights and share project benefits with local communities and workers.
By delivering better social outcomes – around accessibility, inclusion, empowerment, resilience and wellbeing – we can contribute to all 17 SDGs.
