This year, Stantec pledged to achieve a 1.05-degree-Celsius emissions reduction target, carbon neutrality for 2022 emissions, and net-zero operations by 2030.

“We maintain a dedicated emphasis on sustainability through our operations, leadership focus, and talented staff who guide clients around the globe,” added Mr. Johnston.

Stantec is a global engineering and construction firm whose services include engineering, architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, surveying, environmental sciences, project management, and project economics.
