Langan and its employees are committed to being global citizens through volunteerism, conservation and philanthropy. We believe in being active stewards of the world we live in – it is one of our Core Values:
Citizenship – Contribute our time, skills and knowledge to foster change in the communities where we live and work.
This commitment to corporate social responsibility takes many forms, and our employees are empowered to find ways that reflect how they can impact their communities.
SUPPORTING OUR PEOPLE AND THEIR COMMUNITIES
We partner with more than 130 non-profit and charitable organizations to support initiatives focused on community development, medical research, economic opportunity, humanitarian aid, education, and advancement of our profession.
We are proud of the philanthropic contributions we make to these groups, and humbled by the individual community service efforts of our employees. Some of the organizations we partner with include Engineers Without Borders, Habitat for Humanity, ACE Mentoring Program, American Red Cross, and American Cancer Society.
We also take great pride in helping to provide our future engineers, scientists, and technical specialists with access to educational resources. We support STEM programs at colleges and universities throughout the country, including Rutgers University, Virginia Tech, University of California, Berkeley, Stevens Institute of Technology, University of Illinois, Purdue University, New York University, and others.
PROTECTING OUR PLANET
All Langan services tend toward sustainable design, and we practice what we preach. The Langan Corporate Sustainability Plan is an actionable framework that lays out a strategy to further expand our sustainable practices and services; formalizes employee-led “green” grassroots efforts; and minimizes our environmental footprint where we operate.
Since 2014, we have cut paper usage nearly in half among our 30 offices, implemented recycling programs, reduced energy usage, established an internal award to recognize sustainable design projects, and offset 437 tons of CO2 at our major corporate events. In 2018, Langan reached a milestone in our sustainability efforts: we now operate as a carbon neutral business. In 2019, we won the Acterra Award for Sustainability.
