Tetra Tech Recognizes International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples 2021

Tetra Tech is Leading with Science® around the world to support Indigenous peoples through our work and in our communities to develop sustainable, scalable solutions that protect their rights, cultures, and resources and improve their opportunities, environments, and participation in decision-making.

According to the United Nations (UN), more than 476 million Indigenous peoples live in 90 countries across the world, accounting for 6.2 percent of the global population. Tetra Tech joined the UN Global Compact, which supports UN efforts to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, and address climate change. As part of our commitment to the UN Global Compact, we are celebrating the International Day of the World’s Indigenous peoples.

Tetra Tech is committed to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace for all people. Throughout six of the major regions where we work, we employ, train, learn from, and partner with Indigenous peoples in our projects and operations. We aim to build awareness and understanding within our workforce about Indigenous culture, heritage, and issues in the regions where we work and provide sustainable career and business opportunities for Indigenous peoples.
