HDR Corporate Responsibility Report Among First to Use New Materiality Disclosure Service

 HDR has issued its 2014 Corporate Sustainability Report, which used the Global Reporting Initiative Materiality Disclosure Service to verify that the company met all materiality reporting requirements.

HDR is one of the first firms to use the new Materiality Disclosures Services and one of only five architecture/engineering/consulting firms in the United States to use the new G4 Guidelines. These guidelines have an increased emphasis on the need for organizations to focus on topics that are material to their business and key stakeholders.

Key sections of the report include MATERIALITY: WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO US?, Improve Lives, Build Vibrant Communities, Fulfill a Global Vision, Maximize Productivity of our Natural Resources and Create Value. The report also updates progress toward meeting HDR's carbon footprint reduction goal. The company has set a 2020 target for reducing GHG emission levels by 20 percent from the 2011 baseline, adjusted for growth, and is currently ahead of its reduction target, having reduced actual emissions by 3.3 percent since 2011.
