At the end of 2019, Thornton Tomasetti’s corporate responsibility steering committee began a strategic planning process for the next five years – an effort that mirrored firm-wide five-year planning for the firm’s practices and offices. We committed to seven big goals. Some were carried forward from our previous midrange plan from 2016, and others are new to the mix.
We engage our employees in the global effort to mitigate and adapt to climate change by practicing what we preach through our internal policies and behaviors.
Our Environmental Statement

Everyone at Thornton Tomasetti is empowered to change our industry. We know diversity drives innovation, so we will set and achieve targeted data-driven goals to increase inclusion and diversity among our staff, leaders, owners and board of directors. We will cultivate a welcoming and rewarding environment where everyone can achieve their full potential throughout their career journey here. We will increase our investment in continuous learning to expand and nurture our staff and future leaders. And we will support opportunities for everyone at our firm to give back to their communities.
Support a Healthy & Lifestyle-Friendly Workplace
Caring about our employees is part of our culture of respect. We want a healthy and lifestyle-friendly workplace because we care about our people, but also because we want to attract and retain the best talent and reduce healthcare costs.
