Leading by Example
Protecting and preserving our environment is a growing concern for everyone. At Burns & McDonnell, we've translated that concern into sustainable action.
We've started at home base. We've transformed the Burns & McDonnell headquarters into a lab of sustainable solutions. In the past few years, we've implemented strategies to conserve and recycle by focusing on stormwater bioretention, energy management and transportation.
So far, our efforts at home have reduced energy consumption by 16 percent, and we conserve 1.5 million gallons of water each year.

Beyond Our Buildings
And we're reaching further into our schools, our communities, our cities and our states to lead and inspire sustainable initiatives. Because for us, environmental responsibility doesn't end with us. It's about building real-world environmental solutions that serve our communities and building the passion, motivation and commitment among our neighbors that results in continued reach, extending our efforts further than we can alone.
Missouri River Cleanup
We take water seriously — on and off the job. The Big Muddy Cleanup is just one way we show our commitment to the environment and to the historic river that has shaped the identity of our state and our communities.
We're proud to do work that matters every day — for our clients and the communities where we live and work. An exhibit booth that feeds the community and offsets its carbon impacts was a natural evolution.
Learn Green. Live Green.
With the Center School District, we are creating hands-on environmental learning for kindergarten through high school students through rain gardens, community gardens and a greenhouse green jobs program.
