Austin employee-owners make health a priority with programs devoted to weight management, nutrition, physical activity and stress reduction. And employee-owners participate in a variety of health-related causes, including charity walks, runs and bike ride events to raise money for research and funding for health-related organizations.
Austin embraces the responsibility for the impact of our activities on the natural environment, our most indispensable supplier. Each year, we recycle millions of tons of reinforced steel and also engage in asphalt recycling. Austin recently upgraded its equipment fleet to newer Tier 3 engines that do not produce exhaust gas. Locally, employee-owners regularly participate in local beautification and cleanup projects.
Austin is proud to be a sponsor of various art and cultural programs in the communities where we do business. We fund music and dance festivals, theater events, and museum programs that provide an opportunity for people of all walks of life to enjoy the arts.
Austin partners with local school districts and education-based organizations around the country to improve the quality of public and higher education, decrease high school dropout rates, and educate students on the types of career opportunities in the construction industry.
Austin actively engages in a number of social and economic issues to help improve the quality of life not only locally, but globally. Advocating on behalf of more than 100 causes each year, Austin employee-owners work together to make a difference.
