1. Chair & CEO Statement
Challenging today. Reinventing tomorrow.
At Jacobs, we see every day as an opportunity to make the world better. And we recognize the critical role we play in developing a sustainable future.
Today, we reveal a plan that sets us apart — capturing the shared passion, pride and drive of our people as we work to preserve our planet for future generations. From the way we operate our business, to the work we perform with clients and other organizations, Jacobs’ Climate Action Plan details how we will continue to make a positive environmental, societal and economic difference for businesses, governments and communities around the world.
As we set out to reach these goals, our values continue to drive our behaviors, relationships and outcomes: We do things right. We challenge the accepted. We aim higher. We live inclusion. These values underpin and celebrate all that we do, both within our company and in our communities.
Together, we are pushing the limits of what is possible and staying ahead to create the new standards of our future — committing to 100% renewable energy and Net Zero Carbon in 2020 and a long-term goal to be carbon negative by 2030 — planning beyond today for a more sustainable tomorrow.
