It goes by many names—Social Responsibility, Corporate Stewardship, Going Green, etc. But “sustainability” can simply be defined as a corporate entity’s approach to incorporating long-term environmental, social, and economic goals into its everyday activities and culture to achieve improved efficiencies, performance, and prosperity.

The current overwhelming clamor surrounding “sustainability” has the potential to dilute the efforts and outcomes of individuals and companies striving to achieve the elevated milestones of this important initiative. At Baker, we are working methodically to build the appropriate tools and applications to help us succeed in this endeavor and to better serve our clients and the communities where we live and work.

Innovation is derived from many sources and driven by many factors. Cost, schedule, and project challenges all drive the need to innovate, but it’s oftentimes people who are the primary source.

At Baker, our people are empowered to develop and implement innovative approaches in helping clients meet their strategic objectives. With the latest tools of technology applied to deep knowledge and experience, our architects, engineers, and design professionals are employing innovative solutions best matched to project needs.

Michael Baker Corporation (Baker) was founded in 1940 by Michael Baker, Jr., and quickly attained recognition as a premiere engineering design and survey firm through superior project performance for the U.S. military, preceding World War II.

From the 1950s through the mid-1970s, Baker’s reputation as a premiere provider of professional engineering services continued to grow along with the size of the business. The Company became publicly traded on the American Stock Exchange in 1968. Following the death of the founder in 1977 and a corporate restructuring in 1984, Company ownership shifted to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The 1980s and early-1990s saw Baker once again proactively expanding its range of services primarily through the acquisition of construction and operations and maintenance services firms.

By the late-1990s, Baker had overcome a number of adversities that had impacted its profitability and focus on its core businesses. A series of divestitures during this period and a consolidation of core competencies helped the Company resurrect its position in both the engineering and energy markets it served. Since 2000, the Company has continued to perform well in its core markets. Its ENR rankings continue to be measured in the top 10% of all U.S. engineering design firms. Baker has endured its share of challenges, but has also continued to grow and prosper, without losing site of its primary purpose: Creating value by delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for infrastructure and the environment.

At Baker, our purpose is creating value by delivering innovative and sustainable solutions for infrastructure and the environment. Integral to that purpose is to create value in and ensure the sustainability of the communities where we live and conduct business. To that end, we – the company and our employees – donate funds, volunteer time and contribute in-kind gifts to help improve the quality of life in these communities.

Financial support is provided to individuals and organizations primarily in the areas of Arts and Culture, Education, and Health and Human Services. We also contribute to similar endeavors coordinated by many of the Professional Societies in which our employees participate.

Across the company and throughout the country, Baker employees donate their time and efforts on behalf of various charitable causes. To the right under Community Projects are just a few of the examples of these volunteer activities.

A critical element of Baker’s long-range growth strategy is mergers and acquisitions. Following is information on M&A transactions that Baker has completed to date.

Baker is committed to our employee’s health and safety, complying with all applicable Health, Safety and Environmental regulations, and to promoting safety on our projects.
