Supporting a Sustainable Future

Being resourceful stewards of our environment is a responsibility we take seriously with every project pursued. We understand the importance of our clients' environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals and work to develop future-focused solutions across all industries, including oil and gas facilities, local governments and manufacturers, and transportation and utilities. We are proud to serve as a trusted partner for those striving toward sustainable initiatives.


Greenhouse Gas and Air Emissions

Future-focused solutions are a top priority for our firm. With this forward-thinking approach in mind, our team conducts greenhouse gas (GHG) and criteria pollutant emissions accounting and prepares reduction strategies. By providing reports for industry compliance and sustainability frameworks, we help to evaluate Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions to mitigate negative environmental impacts. Our team can help you tackle the challenges with permitting, emissions control and regulatory evaluations, modeling for impacts to sensitive populations and environmental justice analyses, and predictions of emissions for offsets as part of net zero plans.

Sustainable Siting and Development

The world of environmental compliance can be difficult to navigate. We can provide you studies and documentation to achieve project approvals through the realm of federal, state, local and utility commission regulations. Environmental impact statements, environmental assessments and route selection studies are often the first step toward project construction, and we assist in selection and development of sites that minimize environmental impacts and create opportunities for sustainable operations. With experience ranging from renewable siting projects to battery storage, we have the background to help you achieve your site goals.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Planning

You want to achieve your environmental, social and governance planning goals and we want to help you get there. Our team can help you identify, prioritize and implement sustainability initiatives, including goal setting and tracking. We’re ready to address any challenges related to sustainability orientation and workforce education; current and future state analyses; gap analyses; reporting framework selection; environmental performance improvement strategies; and project development for carbon reduction and credits.

Materials Management

From sorting materials to designing recycling programs, developing a zero-waste plan can be a challenge. Our team can help community leaders develop solid waste and materials management plans, source recyclable materials and procure materials for recovery services to produce cost-effective solutions.


Keeping communities powered with reliable and efficient services is key to help meet sustainability goals. Serving as a single point of contact for energy diversification and storage projects, our integrated team can serve as your guide for energy diversification opportunities relating to solar, wind, hydro, biomass, biofuels, biochemicals, renewable natural gas, electrification, hydrogen and ammonia. In such emerging markets as transportation electrification, we work with utilities, transit agencies and fleet operators to find realistic, sustainable and actionable solutions based on data.

Wetland Mitigation and Conservation Banking

Protecting our environment is a crucial foundation for project success. To help mitigate environmental impacts, we help you comply with federal, state and local regulations. Our long-term efforts have included designing, building and monitoring ecological restoration sites, wetland mitigation projects and species-specific conservation initiatives.

Public Involvement

Maintaining clear communication is a vital part of successful projects. Public involvement is essential to achieving sustainability goals, whether for a first ESG report or a strategic plan in place for decades to come. We help engage stakeholders early through multiple channels, including public outreach, community engagement, change management, media relations and strategic communications. Our Prosci-certified change management professionals offer expertise essential to successful ESG implementation.

Climate Resiliency

With ever-changing weather patterns, it’s important to prepare clients for the worst, while hoping for the best. We help clients plan for climate change and clean up after natural disasters. Our projects incorporate climate resilience by accounting for: forecasting flood plain and sea level changes; meteorology and modeling; land, forestry management and master planning; water availability studies and reuse evaluations; groundwater modeling and restoration; and vegetation replanting.

Water Resources

To maintain the highest water quality standards for our communities, we are involved with every aspect of the water industry from stormwater management to sustainable treatment solutions. Creating a safe and reliable supply that people can depend on is a standard our firm holds in the highest regard. Our experience in engineering and environmental compliance has led us to design, construct and innovate on behalf of our clients. Our sustainable water project experience includes wetland restoration, water and wastewater program management, green stormwater infrastructure and industrial and municipal water recycling and reuse facilities."


To make judicious use of limited resources, our work routinely includes optimizing the environmental impact of remediation programs using best management practices. Taking a holistic approach means considering sustainability early. From site investigation through remedy selections, and from construction and operation treatment systems through closeout, we take a step back to look at the whole picture not just on the challenge in front of us.
