Environmental, Social, and Governance


Sustainability is a key component of our services at Ware Malcomb. From the initial design processes to materials selection, we strive to prioritize environmental stewardship, resource efficiency and resilience. By innovating with sustainability in mind, we can design buildings and sites that are not only highly effective and functional but also environmentally friendly and adaptable.

We signed the American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2030 Commitment, joining our peers pledging to design buildings that achieve net-zero energy by 2030.

Beyond delivering sustainable design solutions, we also manage our internal environmental footprint. We implement various environmental management initiatives focused on energy efficiency, water conservation and waste reduction and recycling.


At Ware Malcomb, we foster an entrepreneurial spirit that empowers our team members to be creative and take initiative. As we operate within the dynamic landscape of the AEC industry, we recognize the significance of prudent governance in maintaining the trust of our team members, clients and partners, and sustaining our success.

We consider ourselves more than a group of individuals. We embrace the principle of “WM One Team”, which extends beyond coordination and collaboration to emphasize our collective responsibility to act in the best interests of our clients, industry partners and the community. By encouraging both individual responsibility and collective accountability, we maintain a culture of trust and integrity.

Detailed information about our Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives can be found in our ESG Report.


We are committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion where every team member, regardless of their background, has equal opportunities to grow their career, contribute their unique perspective, and feel respected and supported.

Ware Malcomb’s DEI Team spearheads a variety of initiatives including community outreach, education and training, communication and events.

We build strong and enduring partnerships with organizations and non-profits that exemplify dedication and commitment to DEI, and are a proud member of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA). This partnership offers a great opportunity to expand DEI efforts in several areas including recruiting, community outreach and more.

We strive to build lasting partnerships with diverse business enterprises. Our supplier diversity program strengthens our relationships with DBE partners and expands our reach in attracting top talent in underrepresented and disadvantaged communities. 

We are pleased to participate in the EcoVadis business sustainability rating system.

Since 1979 we have offered scholarships and internships that provide expanded academic and career development opportunities. Detailed information about these scholarships and Ware Malcomb’s DEI programs and initiatives can be found in our ESG Report.
