BUILDING FOR THE
GREATER GOOD

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We will be better people and better companies for having worked together.

At Mortenson, building for the greater good means that we consider the long-term health and vitality of our stakeholders in all we do. This includes our team members, customers, partners, communities, and the planet on which we live. It's about doing the right thing. It's about lifting others up and helping them succeed. It’s about making a positive impact today, and for generations to come.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is realized in three ways:

Hear from leaders across our company to learn what it means to be Building for the Greater Good.

We have been committed to making a difference since our founding in 1954.

Focusing on Carbon Reduction in the AEC Industry
Recently, Mortenson joined forces with Building Green, a trusted source on healthy and sustainable design and construction strategies, among other leading contractors, to actively engage in the adaptation of the Contractor’s Commitment. Together, we are piloting new ways to track and measure company-wide sustainability as a contractor – focused on areas we can influence – from carbon reduction and jobsite wellness to water and waste management. We are also dedicated to growing our electric vehicle fleet and prioritizing waste reduction.

BUILDING FOR THE GREATER GOOD IN OUR COMMUNITIES

‘Doing something good’ comes from the heart, and it’s as ingrained in our company culture, as it is in all of our team members. As part of our company’s CSR program, every year, our teams donate their time, treasure and talents to more than 600 local organizations across the country.

Community Impact Program

At Mortenson, we’ve created a culture where people do the right thing, inspire others to achieve their best, and put others before ourselves. Our Community Impact Program lets us do just that. The program helps us achieve a greater impact together than any one of us can do alone.

We do this through:

   Developing local community partnerships and allyships

   Connecting team members to charities and non-profits that seek donations and volunteerism

   Empowering our teams to give back in ways and places they are most passionate about
