C&S embraces sustainability throughout all facets of our company. It is a framework that guides our activities and decisions, and an opportunity to provide value to our clients and communities through a holistic approach to planning, design, and construction. We have seen firsthand the benefits of a sustainable mindset through significant cost savings in our own facilities, enhanced efficiency throughout our work, minimized environmental impacts associated with our projects, and increased resiliency in the end products we provide.
Sustainability is a journey, not a destination, and we commit to frequently re-evaluating from where we’ve come and where we’re headed.
In 2018, we published a Sustainability Plan that outlined our approach to corporate environmental stewardship. Our efforts have since evolved to strengthen our environmental commitments and broaden the focus on our team and the people that sustain us. We developed an updated supplement in 2021, documenting our progress. Read our 2021 Sustainability Update.

Sustainability in Our Projects
The projects that we support – through planning, design, construction, and operations – make our communities safer, more efficient, and more resilient. As a professional services firm, we touch several billion dollars in construction projects each year and recognize that we have the opportunity and obligation to influence that activity toward more sustainable solutions.
