Helping Communities Through Impact Infrastructure
We are committed to building sustainable projects that make a lasting impact in the communities that need it the most. This is how we are building a better world.
We created bechtel.org in 2019 because we believe that infrastructure is a force for social good. Bechtel.org delivers sustainable, scalable infrastructure projects to address local challenges through what we call “impact infrastructure.”
Impact Infrastructure is infrastructure that is tied to the wellbeing of communities. It’s resilient and built at the community level. Importantly, it integrates long-term risks and vulnerability assessments into building flexible, sustainable solutions that reduce the adverse impacts of natural hazards and human-made catastrophes.
Bechtel.org addresses challenges such as electrification and digital connectivity, food security, land regeneration, and climate-resilient housing. This critical work involves proactively identifying issues, designing solutions, and deploying the know-how to engineer and build for the greater good.
"We started bechtel.org to help build resilient and sustainable communities. We’re seeking projects and partnerships that can produce scalable solutions for underserved communities around the world."
Brendan Bechtel, chairman and chief executive officer of Bechtel
Every project starts with a social need – for example, tackling life-threatening illnesses or establishing a safe haven for women to prosper. From there, we work closely with local communities, agencies, and experts, and draw upon Bechtel’s global engineering, construction and project management experience, to develop a framework for project delivery.
A deep understanding of the needs and challenges of communities requires empathy and engagement.
Impact Infrastructure is premised on local engagement, capacity building, and knowledge transfer.
Meaningful impact comes through engaging, sharing, and inspiring others to action.
