Global responsibility in engineering

Jacobs has outlined its commitment to sustainability with PlanBeyond 2.0, Jacobs’ sustainable business approach. Aligned with the company’s purpose to create a more connected, sustainable world, PlanBeyond 2.0 is being fully integrated into Jacobs’ business model and company strategy. 

As part of PlanBeyond 2.0, Jacobs has developed six Sustainable Business Objectives to sit at the heart of company strategy and drive sustainability deeper into its culture. These objectives, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, demonstrate Jacobs’ aspirations for how they as an organisation and as individuals can play a part in creating a sustainable future for all.

the partnership

Engineers Without Borders UK and Jacobs are partnering to deliver a training programme to 30 Jacobs employees globally, known as the Advocate Programme. The focus of this programme is to upskill the advocates with the principles of global responsibility to drive change within Jacobs. Jacobs is also a founding partner of our professional design challenge, Reshaping Engineering. This month-long multidisciplinary challenge will provide participants with a unique opportunity to rethink how engineering is taught and practised, to ensure a safe and just future for all.

“As a purpose-led company we know that we have a moral obligation to deliver positive societal and environmental impact through the solutions that we provide globally. The world is facing enormous challenges from increasing threat of climate change, impacts from the pandemic, social inequalities and cost of living crises, and international conflict. Now, more than ever, it is critical to ensure global responsibility is at the heart of our solutions, which is why we have partnered with Engineers Without Borders to deliver the Advocate Programme”.

We look forward to working in partnership over the coming year and seeing the impact the advocates will have”.
