How we can help
By integrating our unique knowledge and capabilities in engineering, technology, and construction, we develop innovative and sustainable solutions to turn ambitious concepts into real projects and helping you achieve your goals.
Building a sustainable future means having a relentless commitment to innovation. We challenge ourselves to decarbonize every project while generating cost-efficiencies to bring greater value.
Bechtel Equipment Operations (BEO) began piloting hybrid equipment in 2022. A Bechtel analysis reveals the Hybrid D6XE Dozer uses up to 29% less fuel– resulting in significantly less CO2 emissions per month.
We are proud to have helped deliver pioneering renewable projects to help customers on their path to net zero, including landmark projects like Ivanpah, the largest solar farm of its time, and the 695-megawatt Keeyask Generating System. Ivanpah continues to reduce carbon emissions by more than 400,000 tons per year, while Keeyask, when completed, will provide clean, renewable, and reliable energy to 400,000 homes.
We’ll also work with you to integrate digital tools and data that are all around us for developing smart cities that evolve with humanity and ensure communities thrive. From helping deliver 5G, beyond master-planning, rethinking rail, and fighting floods we’re there to support you every step of the way.
Net Zero targets
Bechtel is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, and we are currently in the process of setting interim targets that align with the findings of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. We are intent on reducing emissions first (not offsetting), followed by carbon removal in order to counteract any remaining emissions as we get closer to our goal. We are also committed to aligning with our customers and working with our partners and suppliers to ensure we, and the industry, achieve sustainable results.
Building resilient societies
Next to mitigation, adaptation is one of society’s top challenges, and we believe that poor infrastructure, both physical and natural, undermines a society’s ability to develop and grow in a sustainable way.
Our customers are searching for customized solutions to adsorb natural hazards while still retaining essential infrastructure and its intended services. We design, build, and restore to help societies not only adapt and recover faster, but also to build back stronger, greener and more resilient.
