LOS ANGELES -- May 07, 2013

AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional
technical and management support services for public and private clients in
more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has
published its second annual global sustainability report.

The report, titled, “Complex Problems. Integrated Solutions.” demonstrates
AECOM’s approach to helping communities and clients around the globe adapt to
the ever-changing needs of nature and society.

AECOM views sustainability as helping clients, society and its operations
address complex challenges by managing financial, natural, social and human
capital that work together to advance human progress with less risk.

“As a visionary company with an incredibly diverse set of skills, we have the
opportunity to solve some of the world’s most complex and pressing
challenges,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive
officer. “Making a positive impact in the world remains our top priority, and
this report showcases some of the many ways that we incorporate the various
aspects of sustainability into our projects, operations and community

Some of AECOM’s fiscal year 2012 highlights include:

• Being named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies by the Ethisphere
Institute for the third-consecutive year.

• AECOM’s 2012 employee and company donations to charitable and philanthropic
organizations globally totaled more than US$3.5 million. AECOM employees
logged thousands of volunteer hours with its CSR partner organizations in more
than 100 countries.

• AECOM became a signatory and participant in the United Nations Global
Compact, the world’s largest corporate responsibility initiative, with more
than 8,000 business and non-business participants in 135 countries.

New and ongoing projects featured in the report reflect AECOM’s commitment to
create, enhance and sustain the world’s built, natural and social
environments. From winning the master plan design contract for the 2016 Rio de
Janeiro Olympics and Paralympic games to spearheading the largest new
construction project in Beijing, the Tongzhou New City, AECOM projects
continue to solve some of the world’s most complex challenges.

“I am pleased with the solid progress AECOM made towards its sustainability
objectives during the last year, as readers will see in the report,” said Gary
Lawrence, AECOM vice president and chief sustainability officer. “We are now
more focused than ever on enabling our clients to be successful in the most
sustainable ways possible, and we also are applying the same mindset to our
own operations and community activities.”
