Assessing, valuing, and restoring natural resources
We’re giving clients the specific tools and design strategies they need to unlock value hidden within their assets. Our goal? To cost-effectively achieve corporate metrics, enhance corporate stewardship reputation, demonstrate sustainability, preserve social license to operate, and increase value to shareholders.
Our Natural Resource Valuation (NRV) program reflects deep and broad experience and expertise in assessing, valuing, preserving, and restoring natural resources. These professional services naturally fit with the on-the-ground restoration expertise afforded by Stantec’s ecosystem restoration program. We work across many Stantec business lines (water, buildings, transportation, oil & gas, industrial, etc.), providing customized service to both internal and external clientele. As many of Stantec’s NRV clients are confidential, we take special care to respect that confidentiality.
Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA)While the NRDA process has evolved dramatically, our approach has remained constant—we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of NRDA over the past decade. Our staff has worked in nearly every marine, freshwater, and terrestrial environment, and maintain legally and scientifically defensible standards and confidentiality while resolving natural resource liability. What sets us apart? Our understanding of regulatory drivers, our expertise, and our respected relationships with the trustees who apply the regulatory frameworks.
Natural CapitalNatural capital is defined as the world’s renewable and nonrenewable resources that provide a flow of goods and service to all living things. Stantec integrates natural capital into project decision-making to identify economies of scale to increase sustainability, enhance and restore valuable ecosystem services, reduce tax and environmental liabilities, protect biodiversity, increase carbon sequestration, and minimize unnecessary environmental impacts, contributing to quality of life.

Quantitative Mitigation AnalysisQuantitative Mitigation Analysis (QMA), a tool developed by Stantec, provides a means of quantifying losses to natural resources and respective ecosystem services. QMA can be used to develop scaled compensatory mitigation projects, thereby facilitating permitting of large, complex commercial, mining, power, and other human developments. Our team can provide support at every step of the QMA process. We have extensive and broad experience with state and federal regulations—the drivers for compensatory mitigation.
