This 2017 Sustainability and Corporate Citizenship Report focuses on activities and performance from January 1 to December 31, 2016. Historical data for the past 4 years is included in our Snapshot (contained in the report PDF), as appropriate and available, to demonstrate trends. We report our performance on these measures annually, with the most recent report issued in July 2016. As reflected in previous sustainability reports, tracking for some CH2M sustainability metrics extends as far back as 2003.
This report has been prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards: Core option. In some cases, we have adjusted our reporting approach to reflect more accurately CH2M’s business model and operating conventions. In all cases, we respond in the spirit of the GRI indicators to provide a transparent account of our progress, achievements and shortcomings. We selected indicators that apply to our business in meaningful and challenging ways, representing those that reflect effects associated with our operations around the world. For a full explanation of the GRI guidelines, visit www.globalreporting.org. Information on management approach for each topic is incorporated within the report content and on our corporate website, as appropriate.
Components of this report are externally assured by ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 compliance audits, including certain elements of our environmental compliance and management performance. Our financial performance data are assured by the firm’s independent auditors, documented in CH2M’s financial reports and public filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and available online at ir.ch2m.com and the SEC Edgar website. We periodically engage third-party verifiers for our GHG inventory but not every year. We intend to obtain verification upon completion of our inventory for the 2017 goal year.
No significant restatements of information from previous reports are included in this report. No changes have been made in the nature of our business, the base years reported or the timing of reporting periods. The scope and boundaries are noted for each topic, none of which changed significantly from previous reports. Unless otherwise noted, all monetary references are in U.S. dollars (US$). Throughout the report, “tonne” refers to the measure of metric tons.
