Social Responsibility

Herman Weissker, Inc. serves to maintain the environment during construction through field technical support, regulatory reporting, training, and auditing of operational practices. We integrate environmental values into our decision making process, by considering the environmental impacts of activities and finding reasonable alternatives to those actions.

Corporate Sustainability

HWI’s overarching goal is to continually monitor and evaluate its ecological footprint and to work with suppliers, subcontractors and partners who reflect this commitment. While complying with all environmental laws, HWI seeks to be a leader in the civil construction industry, utilizing practices that span recycling and reuse, e-waste disposal, resource conservation and efficiency, and public cleanup initiatives. HWI’s environmental principles mirror those of one of its largest clients, Southern California Edison, which is working toward the state’s goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.


HWI strives to be a leader in workforce diversity, as a certified Minority Business Enterprise, recognized by the Southern California Minority Supplier Development Council. As part of MEI’s portfolio of companies, HWI is driven by a longstanding dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion, not only in its workforce, but in its supply chain.

Community Work

Beyond its environmental, safety, and diversity mandates, HWI is committed to giving back to the communities where it does business, serving as a role model for corporate social responsibility. Through partnership with its parent company, Meruelo Enterprises, Inc. (MEI), HWI supports a breadth of regional nonprofits and community partners which strengthen the social fabric of Central and Southern California. Through sponsorships, educational programs and other initiatives, HWI strives to positively impact beneficiaries that focus on equal opportunity, youth, education, health, and housing.
