Fluor's Offices Consume Water and Energy Responsibly and Reduce Waste.

Our offices reduce waste by donating used furniture, office equipment and supplies, carpet and computers to schools, homes for elderly and non-profit organizations.

Conserving Resources by the Numbers

During renovations, furniture and materials are reused whenever possible. Our waste reduction efforts also include duplex printing and using durable, reusable crates. We recycle paper, cardboard, batteries, mixed/commingled and assorted waste. From 2020 to 2021, we reduced our waste by 13 percent, and our recycle rate improved by 6 percent.

We also track the amount of water we purchase and the amount that we conserve through initiatives, such as deployment of low-flush valves, installation of automatic faucet sensors and commodes and low-flow shower heads.

Our energy reduction initiatives include installing solar panels, replacing lighting with light emitting diode (LED) lights, changing operating time on air conditioning units and behavioral changes. These initiatives are particularly important as we progress on our Net Zero 2023 commitment. From 2020 to 2021, we reduced our indirect energy use (electricity) by 2.4 million kilowatt-hours.

Farnborough Office Incorporates Sustainable Practices Across Site

Fluor's Farnborough office in the United Kingdom is just one of our many facilities that are incorporating sustainable practices across the entire site.

A waste-to-energy plant powers the campus, and LED lighting and rooftop solar panels have saved more than $35,000 (£25,000) since 2016. Single-use plastic is not available. All campus waste is recycled, including turning food waste into pesticide-free fertilizer for local farming, so nothing goes to the landfill. The office's waste management vehicles are carbon neutral, and the rest of the fleet runs on electricity. In 2021, the campus reduced its Scope 1 and Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions to net zero, the first Fluor site to achieve the distinction.

Teams also help employees improve their mental health and manage stress during the COVID-19 pandemic, holidays and everyday demands. Mental Health First Aiders and UK Mental Health and Wellbeing Committee members support colleagues to make themselves, the people they care about and their community stronger.
