Cardno signals green credentials with new sustainability report


Australian infrastructure giant releases its 2020 Global Sustainability Report.

Global infrastructure company Cardno has signalled its green credentials with the release of its new 2020 Global Sustainability Report. The company says the report, published this month, demonstrates its “visible commitment to sustainability and embedding sustainable practices, not only into our own business but into the businesses of our clients and the communities in which we work”.

The report highlights Cardo’s 2020 progress and outlines what it intends to achieve in the future, including a number of ambitious goals the company has set itself aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Cardno’s Sustainability Taskforce, who worked tirelessly to compile the report, includes employees from all aspects of its business – technical, administrative, and business development. The team has helped to gather Cardno’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) related material and knit it together, ensuring that the firm’s sustainability efforts are not just words but also deeds.

Writing in the report, Cardno CEO and managing director Susan Reisbord said: “We strive to ensure that we act in a socially responsible manner with regard to our employees, our clients and supply chains, while also having a positive impact in the communities and environments in which we live and work. Our global sustainability policy outlines our commitment and intent to promote environmental equity and minimise the environmental impact of our business.”

“There is much more to come in the sustainability space at Cardno,” say the company. “We are focusing on how we’ll measure and report on our progress against each of our goals and we are further developing our ESG service offering to clients,” it says.

Headquartered in Brisbane, Australia, Cardno is active in the global infrastructure, environmental and social development arena, operates in more than 100 countries and employs more than 4,000 staff.
