Integrating sustainability across our business
At Tetra Tech sustainability is an integral part of our global business, rooted in our internal culture, and extending throughout our projects around the world. For nearly 60 years we have leveraged cutting-edge expertise and the latest technology to deliver more sustainable solutions to clients and continually improve the way we do business.
Through our Sustainability Program, we monitor environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics, including human and social capital aspects. We continue to enhance the sustainability of our daily practices, reduce our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and provide an exceptional working environment for our employees across our global operations.
Improving 1 billion lives around the world
Our 1 Billion People Challenge recognizes that Tetra Tech’s greatest impact on the world is through the 100,000 projects our scientists, engineers, and technical specialists perform each year in more than 100 countries.
We assess and report annually on project impacts and the associated benefits to people through five key metrics that are integral to the work we do.

million metric tons (MT) of CO₂e avoided or captured
billion gallons of water treated, saved, or reused
Aligning with global best practices
