Bechtel backs CoST
Bechtel has become the latest major international contractor to offer its support for CoST. Nancy Higgins, Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer at Bechtel Corporation said:
“As one of the most respected engineering, construction, and project management companies in the world, Bechtel is uncompromising in our integrity, honesty, and fairness everywhere we operate. Our industry benefits from global initiatives, such as the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative (CoST), that support national capacities to promote ethical standards and behaviour in the marketplace".
Bechtel is ranked third in Engineering News-Record’s list of the Top 250 International Contractors. This means that with Strabag and Skanska, which are ranked sixth and eighth respectively, CoST has now received backing from three of the world’s top ten international contractors.
