At Aecon, the term “corporate social responsibility” (CSR) isn’t something we reflect upon or ponder as much as it’s something we simply do as a company every single day and have for years. The numerous elements that traditionally constitute CSR are, in fact, activities and initiatives already embedded in the Aecon culture and reflected in our daily operations and underlying business strategy.

For us, CSR speaks to how we conduct ourselves as we proudly stand behind our corporate trademark, “Building Things That Matter.” It is a message that connects with our employees and clients alike. Everyone wants to work for a company that makes a difference in their lives and their communities.

It’s only fitting, then, that when it comes to corporate social responsibility, “How We Build Things Matters” should serve as our motto to aptly define CSR here at Aecon. And when we look at our value chain, we begin to gain a clearer picture of the how, as every aspect of our business structure contributes to the overall success of our company.

Our people at Aecon make us a leader in construction and infrastructure development. We strive to hire the most talented, dedicated and qualified people in the business and invest in them by offering unique employment opportunities and career-long learning experiences.

And with every single project we undertake, it is the cumulative combination of people working together that forms the trusted partnerships upon which Aecon builds its success. Whether they be our valued clients, joint venture partners, subtrades, suppliers, Indigenous communities or governments, we are proud of these sustainable partnerships built on the strength of shared visions and mutual core values.
