Corporate Sustainability Initiatives

Native planting area - Gannett Fleming

  • Gannett Fleming's East Lawn area of the corporate headquarters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has been transformed into a native planting area.
  • As part of our commitment to sustainability, the garden saves energy and reduces pollution by lowering the use of gasoline-powered mowers, supporting the ecosystem, and improving water quality.

Authenticity. Walking the walk. Through our corporate sustainability initiatives and programs, we actively identify opportunities to improve the environment and support the communities in which we live and work. We remain accountable to these efforts through a yearly audit that helps us to adjust and invest in our sustainability program. Our efforts are making an impact. Since 2010, we’ve exceeded all of our corporate sustainability goals. And during this time, we reduced water usage by 50 percent and energy usage by 40 percent at our corporate headquarters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Each year, we continue our journey by identifying additional capital improvements and implementing new programs to further reduce our environmental impacts.

    Improving the Workplace

    • We’ve invested in many capital improvements to improve the efficiencies of our corporate headquarters campus in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. 
    • Key enhancements were the design and installation of a 1,400-square-foot vegetated roof and establishment of a native planting area. Both efforts help to reduce stormwater runoff and costs associated with fertilizers, chemicals, and grounds maintenance. 
    • Offices have instituted recycling programs, activities, and policies to reduce waste, such as installing Reverse Osmosis water dispensers to replace bottled water, launching a composting program for food waste, and replacing disposable plates, napkins, and silverware with microwavable china and metal silverware.
