CH2M receiving World Environment Center’s 2016 Gold Medal Award for Sustainable Development

The World Environment Center announced that the 2016 Gold Medal Award for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development has been awarded to CH2M.

The World Environment Center (WEC) announced that the 2016 Gold Medal Award for International Corporate Achievement in Sustainable Development has been awarded to CH2M, one of the world’s premier infrastructure and natural resource management companies. The award will be presented to CH2M Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jacqueline Hinman on May 19, 2016 at the 32nd Annual WEC Gold Medal Gala in Washington, D.C.

CH2M is being recognized for its deep commitment to sustainability and social responsibility throughout the company, including valuing ecosystems services, partnering with leading environmental nonprofits, and acting as a global leader in international water initiatives.

“We are honored to receive such an outstanding distinction, especially knowing that many of our pioneering, visionary clients have received the Gold Medal Award before us,” said Jacqueline Hinman, CEO and Chairman of CH2M. “We built our company around innovation, creativity, and collaboration, and it’s a privilege to do work that advances the well-being of our clients and communities.”

In its Gold Medal submission, evaluated in a global competition with companies in multiple business sectors, CH2M explained how it is moving toward a more sustainable planet:

“On behalf of the Gold Medal Jury, I extend my congratulations to CH2M for embedding sustainability within its core mission, and for embracing innovation to become a leader in the environmental engineering field,” stated Kathy Sierra, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, who chaired WEC’s independent Gold Medal Jury. “From natural capital solutions to green infrastructure, sustainable water management and STEM education, CH2M embodies a forward-looking, holistic approach to corporate sustainability.”

As an industry leader and one of the first in its sector to publish a sustainability report, CH2M is passionately committed to corporate citizenship; positively affecting the environment, society, and the economy; and helping clients create a healthy, vibrant future for future generations.
