Designing the future, across sectors and across borders

From the water we drink, to the energy we consume. From our transport networks, to the buildings where we live and work. From our towns and cities, to our natural spaces.

We’ve always been passionate about designing for the future. Engineering Net Zero means designing the future itself.

Engineering Net Zero represents more than simply ticking a box, following legislation, or jumping on bandwagons. It is our commitment to giving our clients and partners, and ourselves, a clear route to a more sustainable future. It translates to systems thinking at every level, across every sector. And we’ve been walking the talk for some time.


Cross-sector, systems thinking

Systems thinking defines our process, and our route, to Net Zero. We draw on the expertise and experience of our global network to deliver world-leading projects from concept to completion, offering comprehensive, innovative solutions across the lifecycle of new and existing assets. We don’t work in silos: our learnings are synthesised, our strategies connected, our ideas shared. It means working together to investigate all aspects of the problem first, the contributory factors and critical interactions, and finding the best route to the best-possible outcome. It’s being prepared to ask the challenging questions – Why build, if we can optimise? If we started from scratch, how would our advice change?

There will come a point in the future when we won’t need to talk about Engineering Net Zero. Until then, we will continue to work together across sectors and borders, to design that future.

Our Sectors


Transforming how we generate and provide the energy to power our projects, and our planet, is fundamental to achieving Net Zero. Clean energy sources such as hydrogen, renewables, hydroelectricity and nuclear are at the heart of a Net Zero future.


Our infrastructure experts work closely with our global energy and transportation teams to create completely integrated solutions to help clients – from water to aviation and cities – to meet the Net Zero challenge head-on.


SNC-Lavalin’s global expertise spans all modes of transport and related infrastructure, spanning rail, road, sea and air. Our experts are guided by their mission to shape the future of transport, to make it safer, more efficient and reliable than ever before ensuring the transport sector plays a pivotal role in supporting the delivery of the Net Zero Carbon target.
