Sustainability Vision and Policy

Louis Berger received Silver Level recognition in the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Sustainability Commitment for its Sustainability Vision and Policy and corporate social responsibility activities.

Louis Berger’s Sustainability Vision and Policy guides its commitment to fostering sustainability within its operations, work and communities. Louis Berger has enhanced its services with the certification of more than 130 Envision Sustainability Professionals (ENV SPs) and by regularly engaging employees around sustainability. Some initiatives include the Reduce Your Foodprint office competition, which challenged employees to take simple actions to reduce the impact of their food choices, and partnering with Direct Energy Solar to offer employees a discount on the purchase of a residential solar system. Louis Berger fosters global environmental stewardship, social wellbeing and economic prosperity through these programs that improve employee health and safety, wellness, and diversity and inclusion.

The APTA Sustainability Commitment recognizes members who commit to becoming more sustainable in their operations and practices. Public transit agencies and businesses in the APTA Sustainability Commitment pledge to implement processes and actions that create continuous improvements in environmental, social and economic sustainability. Based on specific measurable achievements, organizations are given varying levels of recognition.
