Fortune magazine ranks AECOM most admired infrastructure company in the world
This is the seventh consecutive year that the Company has been recognized on the list.
“Leading Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list in our industry highlights our employees’ ongoing dedication, resiliency and innovation in delivering transformative solutions, especially amid the uncertainties of the past year,” said Troy Rudd, AECOM’s chief executive officer. “Behind our Think and Act Globally strategy, our professionals deliver exceptional quality services and technical expertise for our clients, building on our strong financial performance and creating value for all our stakeholders.”
In 2020, despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, AECOM delivered for its employees, clients, communities and stockholders resulting in strong financial performance in Fiscal Year 2020 that exceeded guidance on nearly every key financial metric. Its teams mobilized quickly and safely to lead the industry in disaster response and developed innovative digital consulting solutions that increase engagement and streamline processes critical to economic and social recovery.
Additionally, as a leading Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) firm, AECOM continued to partner with clients in advancing sustainable solutions, set its own Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) approved emissions reductions targets and launched its Thrive with AECOM initiative to further its commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.
Fortune collaborated with Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputations and determined the best-regarded companies by asking executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent.
