Sustainability for People and the Planet


Sustainability starts at home. DPR doesn’t just build green, we live it. From eliminating single-use water bottles in our offices to incorporating solar-powered energy on construction sites, we’re implementing innovative solutions to benefit our people, partners, customers and the planet.

DPR's global sustainability group is dedicated to keeping the company laser-focused on sustainability. This commitment includes investment in our own net-zero-energy offices that serve as living labs to tracking our energy and water use, a vital component of our carbon footprint.

Walking The Talk

From the inception of DPR, we’ve known that if we take care of our people, good work will follow. Taking care of our people has to start with the spaces we ask them to occupy for work every day.

Sustainability for Our Customers

Our desire to save the planet translates to our projects and jobsites. We take steps from sourcing responsibly-produced building materials to managing jobsite environmental aspects to programs to reduce jobsite waste and more.

But the work isn’t done when we turn over a building to an owner: The lifecycle of a building itself has the potential to leave the deepest carbon footprint. That’s why we counsel clients and provide them with tools to maintain sustainable practices long after the ribbon-cutting ceremony. We don’t blindly recommend green strategies to customers; we consider the social and economic impacts because sustainability goals aren’t achievable without economic stability.

At DPR, we believe sustainability goes beyond just the environment. It’s about building spaces that are healthy for both the planet and the people who use them.

At DPR, we believe sustainability goes beyond just the environment. It's about building spaces that are healthy for both the planet and the people who use them and it takes collaborative planning to not only achieve this goal but to do so most affordably.
