Charting our progress over the past year, WSP’s 2021 Global ESG report sets out our unequivocal commitment to creating positive, long-lasting impacts on the communities we serve. It covers our performance for the year ended December 31, 2021 and highlights a number of key accomplishments, including:

  • Clean Revenues: In 2021, approximately 51.5% of our total global revenues came from services that have a positive environmental impact and support the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
  • GHG Reductions: Our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets were approved by the Science-Based Targets initiative in April 2021. Last year, we reduced our Scope 1, 2 (market-based) and 3 GHG emissions by 15% compared to a 2018 baseline.
  • Climate Transition Plan: Launched with our 2021 ESG report, our Climate Transition Plan provides an overview of our GHG emissions reduction targets, our net-zero commitment and our bold strategies to achieve these targets during our collective transition to a low-carbon future.

The report also includes case studies of our project work and interviews with key leaders, showcasing how we help our clients and communities achieve their Future Ready® ambitions by providing strategic advice and technical expertise.

Prepared in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative standards, our ESG report also serves as our UN Global Compact Communication on Progress.
