Granite published its 2021 Sustainability Report, highlighting the company’s advancement on environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. “Sustainability is central to the purpose of our business as we seek to provide infrastructure solutions that support more sustainable and resilient communities,” said Granite President and Chief Executive Officer Kyle Larkin. “The theme of this Sustainability Report – Building Beyond 100 – reflects our vision for the future as we celebrate Granite’s centennial milestone.” The report also serves as Granite’s Communication on Progress as a participant in the United Nations Global Compact. Granite utilizes the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to inform its reporting, strategy, and initiatives. The report is aligned with standard sustainability reporting frameworks, including the Global Reporting Initiative, the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board, and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.
