Our values in action: Redefining business in the AEC industry
PAE is proud to join the ranks of Certified B-Corporations. As one of the first ten building design engineers in the country to be certified and just over a thousand companies certified in the U.S. alone, along with our vision to help solve the planet’s energy and water challenges operating as a triple bottom line firm for over a decade, this was a natural next step for us.
PAE is humbled and excited to announce that we are now a Certified B-Corporation. B-Corps are businesses are purpose-driven, using their products, services, and profits as a force of good. Meeting the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, B-Corps redefine the business landscape and build a more inclusive, responsible, and sustainable economy.
With over 4,000 Certified B Corporations across 77 countries and 1,300 is the U.S., PAE is both proud and humbled to join the ranks of companies such as these.
Our vision is to help solve the planet’s energy and water challenges, and operating as a triple bottom line firm of people, planet, and profit for over a decade, this was a natural step for us. We are leading the way as one of the first ten building design engineers in the country to be certified.
Setting the bar high
Certifications like these not only serve as transparent barometers of our commitments, they also encourage healthy discussions with our clients and our staff.
By measuring our progress, we can better determine where we can improve our impacts in our communities and our planet’s ecosystems. We also hope our stewardship will inspire other organizations to join with us, as governments and non-profits cannot solve societal issues alone.
As PAE President, Paul Schwer, says,
As our world evolves, so must our commitments to society, to people, and to our planet. We vow to routinely review our JUST and B-Corp certifications, to actively listen to our staff and to our clients, and continuously look for ways to improve.
PAE has joined a movement that is focused on making impactful decisions for our employees, community, and the environment knowing that we are dependent upon each other and responsible for future generations.
