Sustainable Solutions

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, balanced solutions.

Sustainability is 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 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

Sustainability is critically important to our role in the AEC industry—and to the infrastructure solutions we provide. 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.

Sustainability is not an add-on service VHB provides. It’s a lens through which we always look as we deliver solutions that consider our clients’ needs—now and into the future. To guide the process, VHB established focus areas within three pillars—social, environmental, and economic—to guide our integrated approach and the responsive solutions we develop.
