Integrated. Balanced. Holistic.

Sustainability is an ongoing practice that takes a holistic approach to problem solving to address and integrate social, environmental, and economic issues through innovative solutions.

Sustainability has served as a foundational element of VHB’s practice and an integral part of our approach. A company founded on stewardship, sustainability is inherent in who we are and how we invest in our people—building our foundation for the future—so we can continue to provide our clients with results that shape our communities in meaningful ways.


Sustainability is critically important to our role in the AEC industry—and to the solutions we provide for the infrastructure that supports our communities. It requires analysis and work across industries, infrastructure, and stakeholders. VHB is committed to continued collaboration with our clients to deliver complex, transformational projects that reimagine the built environment for the better. Sustainability is not an add-on service that we provide. It’s a lens through which we always look as we deliver future-focused solutions. 

Sustainability is not possible without a holistic approach to problem solving. Technology and data are critical when considering social, environmental, and economic perspectives—and for developing long-term solutions.

—Ryan Prime, VHB Sustainability Practice Leader

Sustainability is not new to VHB. It’s woven into everything we do—our culture, our operations, and our client-focus approach.

—Mike Carragher, VHB President & CEO
