2020 Sustainability Report
SMEC releases 11th Communication on Progress to UN Global Compact
Welcome to our 11th Sustainability Report, which outlines our progress towards our sustainability objectives and the environmental outcomes we influence through our projects and services.
This report also comprises our annual Communication on Progress to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
The UNGC is based on CEO commitments to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.
As infrastructure consultants and engineering specialists, we recognise our opportunity and responsibility to influence sustainability and environmental outcomes through the services and advisory we provide on infrastructure projects.
Our global team of sustainability specialists, social scientists, environmental planners, environmental scientists, ecologists, asset managers, urban designers and engineers continue to partner with our stakeholders to deliver wholistic project outcomes and work towards a stronger, more resilient and sustainable future.
“This year’s report highlights our key initiatives and progress towards ensuring we are operating sustainably in our three focus areas: People, Community, and Sustainability and Environment,” says Hari Poologasundram, CEO SMEC and CEO International Surbana Jurong. “We collaborate closely with all our stakeholders, including employees, clients, partners and local communities, in working towards these objectives.”
