Sustainable, liveable futures

A better future is a world that works for all of humanity and the planet.

Sustainable, liveable futures - Aurecon

Acting with purpose for sustainability and climate change

The work we do with our clients to protect and enhance their performance by responding to the risks and opportunities created by climate change will be Aurecon’s biggest contribution to society.

A better future is a world that works for all of humanity and the planet. As engineers, designers and advisors, we play a vital role in helping the communities and economies in which we operate transition to a more sustainable, liveable future.

We believe humanity depends on engineering; we recognise we have a broader stewardship role to play. A deep responsibility to hold.

The pillars of our sustainability strategy

Our sustainability strategy considers the needs and priorities of our key stakeholders. We have built our commitments on a foundation of integrity, quality and respect for people.

Our approach today focuses on driving positive change in six areas to create a better world for tomorrow.

Ethics and integrity

Acting with integrity and honesty is core to how we operate. We protect our reputation by upholding ethical practices and procedures in every project we are involved in.

Health, safety & wellbeing - Aurecon

Health, safety and wellbeing

The health, safety and wellbeing of our people, our clients and their families is always our priority. Why? Because people depend on you.

Our approach to sustainability

We are making choices that will lead to a sustainable, liveable future. The health of our people, our communities and our planet guide our choices. We embed our sustainability objectives and targets firmly in our strategy, operations and culture.

We see sustainability and responding to the climate change challenge as an opportunity for innovation. Through discovery, evolving expertise and corporate transparency, we strive to imagine what a better future looks like.

By embracing change and disruption we create and implement liveable strategy, design and project solutions that deliver enduring intergenerational equity of resources and infrastructure.

A vibrant and sustainable future is not an impossible dream. The choices we make today, have the power to change our tomorrow.

United Nations Global Compact

We recognise climate change is one of the biggest challenges facing the world today. So we’re strengthening our commitment to sustainability and have become a participant in the United Nations Global Compact, which will see Aurecon:

  • Supporting the 10 Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and implementing those principles within our business
  • Committing to making the United Nations Global Compact and its principles part of our strategy, culture and day-to-day operations
  • Engaging in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals

Aurecon is committed to helping achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). While our biggest contribution comes from the work we do with our clients, within Aurecon our immediate focus is on the contribution we can make through SDG 3, SDG 5 and SDG 13.
