Our commitment to Sustainability 

By integrating sustainability into our projects, operations, and company culture, Atkins strives to be a leader in sustainable development. Beneath all of our decisions, big or small, we consider how it impacts the environment, society and economy. 

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), introduced in 2015, is a set of objectives designed as a call to action to end poverty and inequality, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy health, justice and prosperity. These goals are one of the many ways we hold ourselves accountable to operating sustainably. 

We’ve selected three priority objectives from which we can help advance the most and contribute to transforming our planet:

  • Affordable clean energy 
  • Sustainable cities and communities 
  • Climate action
