Mortenson corporate social responsibility


WE ARE BUILDING FOR
THE GREATER GOOD

Corporate Social Responsibility

WE WILL BE BETTER PEOPLE AND BETTER
COMPANIES FOR HAVING WORKED TOGETHER.

At Mortenson, building for the greater good means that we consider the long-term health and vitality of our stakeholders in all we do. This includes our employees, customers, partners, communities, and the planet on which we live. It's about doing the right thing. It's about lifting others up and helping them succeed. It’s about making a positive impact today, and for generations to come.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is realized in three ways: People, Planet, Community.
We call it Building for the Greater Good. 
We believe these three priorities are inherent and relevant to our business – they are areas throughout our business where we can truly make a meaningful impact.

BUILDING FOR THE GREATER GOOD FOR OUR PEOPLE

For more than 20 years, we have been creating opportunities for underserved populations – whether that be at Mortenson or within our communities – and this remains our top priority.  We're on a mission to foster a diverse and inclusive culture across our company and throughout our industry. And we are not stopping there. 

BUILDING FOR THE GREATER GOOD FOR OUR PLANET

We are fully committed to taking steps toward reducing our carbon footprint, reducing waste, and inspiring our customers to achieve their sustainability goals. Together, we are pushing new limits when it comes to creating a better built environment for generations to come, and we have made specific commitments to drive action today.

BUILDING FOR THE GREATER GOOD FOR OUR COMMUNITY

Giving something back to the communities where we live and work is part of who we are. It comes from the heart, and it’s ingrained in our company culture. By leaning into social challenges and leading in our communities, our teams donate time and talent to charities and organizations across the country every year.

PEOPLE

Our approach to building an industry and workplace environment that inspires what’s possible focuses on:

  1. Cultivating an integrated and inclusive culture which values the diversity of each and every team member
  2. Driving economic empowerment by creating opportunities for underserved populations, by advancing and empowering MWBE partners
  3. Developing tomorrow’s workforce, today, by building a pipeline of diverse craft, intentional recruiting, training and career development
  4. Strengthening and developing external allyship and partnership around equity

We won’t rest until we have achieved more diverse representation in our own ranks, and within our industry as a whole.

Across our company, we are focused building teams that reflect the diverse nature of our communities:

  • Encouraging team members to be their whole and authentic selves at work.
  • Creating opportunities to find mentors and build interpersonal relationships across cultures and levels of seniority
  • Supporting our teams’ personal growth by creating safe spaces for learning discussions
  • Developing forums to address social issues  
  • We are committed to providing opportunities for residents who are underrepresented in our industry, including people of color, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities. When you join our team, you’ll gain skills and experiences you can rely on long after our project is complete.
  • Exposing the next generation of youth to career opportunities in the construction trades.

Within our communities, we are:

  • Creating opportunities for underserved populations, primarily through craft recruitment and development efforts.
  • Strengthening the economic health of our neighborhoods through optimizing opportunities for MWBE trade partners that focus on capacity-building and laying a strong foundation for growth.
  • Developing external allyships and partnerships to drive change.
