CSR Profile of Jacques Whitford

Established in 1972, Jacques Whitford is an internationally recognized leader in engineering, environmental, sustainability and earth sciences services solutions. With more than 45 offices across North America and internationally we are proud to be an employee owned company with more than 1,800 staff and over 100,000+ projects in more than 80 countries. Sustainability Statement Jacques Whitford understands sustainability to simply mean: living responsibly, as individuals, communities, businesses and societies in ways that do not damage the natural world. Living responsibly includes enhancing environmental, social, cultural, economic and human rights conditions. The only way to do so is by taking integrated, long-term approaches that systematically unite social, economic and environmental factors as complementary allies. Jacques Whitford's commitment to sustainability arises in view of one big question that we have decided should have bearing on everything we do: 'What will our children, grandchildren and their children inherit?' To answer this question in a way that future generations will respect, we understand that 21st century business solutions will require adopting a revised set of values and metrics upon which to base decisions. They must incorporate a set of environmental, economic and social factors around which all stakeholders can coalesce. We believe that this is not only possible but necessary – redefining business success in ways that improve the environmental, social and economic fabric of our world. We don't think that this is some sort of new 'fuzzy thinking', but rather that our well tried quantitative and practical expertise can be applied to a revised set of standards and expectations.
