Resilience, in the face of inequity, in the face of the destructive effects brought about by climate change, and in the face of infectious diseases, is what we aim to foster across vulnerable communities. Helping people to move from vulnerability to security around the world is why we come to Abt Associates. The historic bushfires that tore through Australia, personally affecting our staff in Canberra and Brisbane, and posing rippling threats to public health, national security, and food production, demonstrate that the scale of today’s challenges requires nothing less than a system-informed, dynamic, data-driven, and bold response. We stand prepared to partner and deliver on transformative solutions. And we take this personally.
It's personal to us because our team of more than 3,700 around the world is motivated by our mission and committed to living Abt’s mission through our project work and through the way we run our company. Decarbonizing our operations, achieving EDGE certification for gender equality, investing in our employees’ development and well-being, and fostering a culture of inclusion—our mission is our north star, and we deliver on it every day.
I am proud of the impact we are creating through our work, how we operate, and how we interact with our communities. As you will see in this report, impact is what drives us.
All the best,
