Arcosa Sustainability Reports
We are committed to integrating ESG into our daily practices and long-term strategies. In line with that commitment and in support of furthering our environmental disclosures, we have aligned our climate-related disclosures with the recommendations of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and certain metrics from the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

At Arcosa, we believe we can play a role in addressing the global climate challenge through our established, environmentally-friendly product lines and strategic management of energy consumption and water conservation. We remain dedicated to developing and implementing initiatives to support reduction efforts, which we anticipate will ultimately lead to direct climate improvement, improved financial returns, and organizational resilience.
In 2021, Arcosa’s Specialty Materials lightweight aggregates facility in Central Indiana identified water consumption as a high priority focus for the year. After years of using municipal-supplied water to cool heating equipment in the production process, the plant installed a closed loop system that uses and recycles glycol to cool. The process change translated to significant water consumption reduction as well as operations cost savings.
In a changing world, Arcosa’s guiding light is the hard work and dedication exemplified by our employees. With over 6,000 employees at more than 150 locations across North America, our team continues to grow. Knowing that we win together, our team collaborates to activate the potential of our employees through prioritization of enterprise-wide safety and health initiatives, inclusion and diversity programs, talent development opportunities, and community impact projects.
2021 was an exciting year celebrating inclusion and diversity at Arcosa as we launched our first employee resource group (ERG): WE~AR: Women of Arcosa.
WE~AR launched on March 25, 2021 with over 375 enthusiastic employees in attendance, both virtually and at our plants. WE~AR was born out of a vision to connect women and allies in the workplace. We believe providing our female employees a collaborative and supportive environment for elevating their voice cultivates a culture of inclusivity and drives stronger employee engagement for a vital group of employees.
Arcosa was built on a foundation of strong ethical governance. From Board competence and composition to annual code of conduct training, we believe our ethical foundation positions us as a leader in the industries where we operate.
