Morrison Hershfield is excited to release our first formal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report.
CSR is important to Morrison Hershfield, our clients and partners, and our communities. The publication of our inaugural CSR report demonstrates our ongoing commitment to environmental, economic and social sustainability.
Recognizing our potential impact
As an engineering services firm, we have the opportunity and the responsibility to incorporate sustainability into our projects and our operations. We work on thousands of projects each year – from buildings to highways to telecommunications networks. We strive to help our clients meet their sustainability goals as we positively impact the built and natural environments, and in turn support the communities they serve.
Making a difference
Engineers, planners and design professionals face numerous challenges. The projects we design today must meet our clients' requirements and provide resiliency to future climate change. Our ability to apply innovative and sustainable design practices and technologies to address these challenges is crucial to our long-term success. We must focus on developing approaches that support forward-thinking, sustainable designs that perform optimally and at a reasonable cost.
We work collaboratively with our clients and partners to help them plan and design solutions that contribute to long-term social, economic and environmental sustainability. We incorporate sustainability into our projects in a number of ways, such as measuring and mitigating potential environmental impacts, and incorporating green building materials, or enhancing building safety and efficiency through effective design.
Our firm CSR report highlights opportunities we have to create value for our clients, our company, our employees and the communities we serve. It touches on how our Innovation and Sustainable Design practices help us meet our clients' needs and extend our environmental and social impacts beyond our walls.
