Think Holistically, Act Locally

Acting environmentally responsible and making sustainable choices go beyond one-time actions or a list of accreditations. Balfour Beatty thinks holistically about sustainability and the balance of broad impact on the environment, the materials we use and how we use them, and the communities we serve.
