Building Futures Equips Thousands of Students for Success

Celebrating its 21st year, Fluor's Building Futures program once again helped to equip underserved children for success as school returned to session in Fluor communities around the globe. With 24 locations participating, Fluor distributed backpacks to almost 5,000 students in nine countries. Each backpack contained school supplies tailored to the needs of the local students.

Working together, the Fluor Foundation and more than 152 employee volunteers worldwide donated more than $118,000 to support students in need. Contributing almost 380 hours, local Fluor Cares teams collected funds and supplies, stuffed backpacks and hosted distribution events for students and their families while adhering to local guidelines for social distancing and pandemic safety.

New this year was a focus on sourcing recycled and recyclable materials wherever possible. With the theme, "Recycling is Cool," Fluor used this year's Building Futures program to shine the light on our corporate commitment to reach Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2023 and to help educate students and families about the importance of sustainable choices in everyday life.
