The private sector, including major engineering firms such as Bechtel, is increasingly aligning activities and programs with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  Please join the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business at the Scheller College of Business and The Center for Serve-Learn-Sustain as they host Tam Nguyen (Global Head of Sustainability at Bechtel) who will lead a discussion on the growing significance of the SDGs in engineering and business. 

Tam Nguyen serves as the corporate manager for sustainability across Bechtel’s core functions and business lines. He directs the formulation and implementation of Bechtel’s sustainability strategy, leads special initiatives, supports project delivery, and manages stakeholder and policy planning on a range of global issues. Tam also serves as vice chair of the corporate responsibility committee of the U.S. Council for International Business, executive officer of Chevron’s Niger Delta Partnership Initiative, and a board member of the Global Engagement Community Resilience Fund. Prior to joining Bechtel, Nguyen worked for Chevron Corporation, the Asian Development Bank in the Philippines, and the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, D.C.

The Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business was founded in 2013 to act as a catalyst and connector, bringing together students, research faculty, companies, and entrepreneurs to create an environment where business-driven solutions to sustainability challenges can take shape and thrive. In all, Scheller provides students unparalleled breadth in environmental sustainability, ethics, corporate social responsibility, social entrepreneurship, and values-based leadership.
