Sustainability is deeply rooted in our culture. It’s the way we live, work, and deliver solutions that solve present challenges with careful consideration of future needs.
We employ industry best practices to meet your sustainability targets, improve efficiency, protect resources, and reduce waste and emissions. And we’re a charter member of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure, an independent organization through which many of our employees have been accredited as Envision Sustainability Professionals.
Whether it’s urban growth, aging and crumbling infrastructure, or traffic congestion, we have a team ready to help you design and implement sustainable strategies that protect our built and natural environments while balancing socio-economic and environmental priorities.
Here’s more about our corporate sustainability initiatives, programs, and policies.
Our annual sustainability report demonstrates how we balance complex and interrelated social, environmental, and financial aspects in our client projects and internal activities.
Through this annual reporting process, we audit our progress toward achieving quantifiable goals to reduce waste, energy, water consumption, and environmental impacts associated with travel and purchasing. Read our 2019 report to learn more.
To stay current on the latest sustainable practices and professional accreditations in our industry, many of our employees are members and leaders in the U.S. Green Building Council and Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (charter member).
We’ve invested in many capital improvements to improve the efficiencies of our corporate headquarters campus in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Key enhancements were the design and installation of a 1,400-square-foot vegetated roof and establishment of a native planting area. Both efforts help to reduce stormwater runoff and costs associated with fertilizers, chemicals, and grounds maintenance.
Offices have instituted recycling programs, activities, and policies to reduce waste, such as installing Reverse Osmosis water dispensers to replace bottled water, launching a composting program for food waste, and replacing disposable plates, napkins, and silverware with microwavable china and metal silverware.
Gannett Fleming, Inc. is committed to significant and lasting steps to conserve natural resources and minimize adverse environmental impacts in projects, work processes, and daily activities. Some clients prefer project documentation in electronic format; accordingly, Gannett Fleming will only produce hard copies of deliverables and final correspondence, if specifically requested by our clients. As a result, together, we may reduce resource consumption associated with document production and decrease our carbon footprints. Thank you in advance in sharing in our commitment.
