In a joint effort among 15 of Fluor’s offices and project sites, groups of employees rallied together to help clean oceans, rivers, lakes and parks in honor of Fluor’s inaugural Global Shore Cleanup.

Nearly 800 employees and community partners across globe assisted in the effort to collect 7.7 tons of litter and clean more than 22 miles of land to ensure our shorelines and waterways are clean for generations to come. Trash in the waterways and on shore is a worldwide problem. It affects air quality, water quality, marine life and economic development for millions.

"Knowing we had Fluor Cares volunteers and partners from different parts of the globe volunteering their time and effort to make an impact, not only demonstrates the One Fluor culture, but how we help foster the culture within each volunteer," said Waheeda Yousofzoy, Global Shore Cleanup co-chair and Southern California community relations coordinator.

The Global Shore Cleanup was born out of our Vancouver employees participating in the Great Canadian Shore Cleanup in 2012.

"In the past, our offices and project sites have been individually volunteering in cleanup and beautification events, but we recognize that by consolidating our efforts with one common goal of keeping our shores and parks clean, we can have a far greater impact," said Anthony Cheung, Fluor Global Shore Cleanup co-chair and Vancouver sales coordinator. “I hope this effort will continue to grow throughout the years to come."
