Firm Revenue Corporate Sustainability Budget

Thornton Tomasetti’s strategic investment in corporate sustainability is unique among engineering firms in the United States. Since 2012, we have maintained a Corporate Sustainability department staffed by a corporate sustainability officer and team, who work to achieve the enduring organization vision of our core ideology by maximizing the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.

The department sets sustainability goals for our business operations and professional services, manages the implementation of these goals in collaboration with other departments and practices, measures our progress, and communicates information about our programs, both internally and externally. While the firm’s Sustainability practice, which provides sustainable design consulting directly to clients on projects, is distinct from Corporate Sustainability, the two collaborate with one another and with our nine other practices to achieve corporate-wide goals. Between 2012 and 2017, the firm expended about $2 million in support of corporate sustainability. Over this same period, the firm’s revenue grew by 92 percent. In 2017, Thornton Tomasetti spent more than $500,000 on corporate sustainability initiatives and staffing.

* The department employs a corporate sustainability officer and an analyst, with part-time assistance from other staff. Our 61 volunteer green champions help implement our initiatives in their home offices.
