Transforming Society for Future Generations
In a society which is changing at a rapid pace, we are not alone in fundamentally transforming the way we operate to respond to climate change, population growth and
other major risks and opportunities facing society.
We undertook a market benchmark analysis of our key stakeholders, as part of our materiality assessment, and found that many of our clients and key stakeholders are also signatories of the United Nations Global Compact. They too are in the process of embedding the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across their business activities and are focusing their improvement on goals which are most material to their organization.
Following a gap analysis and review of existing policies and procedures relating to sustainability, SNC-Lavalin released a Sustainability Policy Statement and updated its Sustainable Business Strategy. The Statement, in conjunction with the Strategy, demonstrates the Company’s long-term commitment to sustainable development and Agenda 2030.
The Strategy outlines how SNC-Lavalin will embed sustainability principles in every aspect of the company, from sector management, to corporate functions, and across all project activities. The document is based on the UN SDGs and focuses on high-level objectives, allocated with ten measurement categories.
