“Ensuring integrity while accelerating our pace of play was imperative to our progress this year,” said Enterprise Director of ESG Director Monica Thilges. “Looking forward, we will continue to prioritize making meaningful reductions in our carbon footprint, and we plan to formally integrate nature-based considerations as reporting standards advance.”

In 2023, APTIM used its voice to share its carbon transition journey at the UN Global Compact USA Summit during Climate Week NYC and encouraged industry supply chain coordination during the Environment Financial Consulting Group’s Sustainability and ESG Forum. The report also highlights APTIM’s philanthropic partnerships with Louisiana State University’s College of the Coast & Environment, Girlstart, and Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University’s Sustainability Institute, as well as a recent commitment to CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.
