Resilient Adaptation & Mitigation

Helping clients address a defining issue of our time

Do you feel the urgency? We do. Do you also see the need to act? So do we. Each time storm surges batter our coastlines, wildfires engulf critical ecosystems, heat domes overwhelm our citizens, floods sweep away homes and businesses, and droughts cripple decimate food and water supplies. Every day, the need to adapt and mitigate the factors contributing to climate change increases.

As design and consulting professionals, we see firsthand how extreme weather impacts the environment, infrastructure, and the communities where we work and play. We have learned that our greatest influence on improving climate outcomes stems from the creative, innovative climate solutions we provide to our clients and communities.

That is why adapting and mitigating the impacts of climate change is an integral part of our project work. Only by addressing climate change today can we create the resilient and sustainable communities of tomorrow.

Nature-based solutions

A functioning, healthy ecosystem protects the people who live within it. It can improve quality of life and reinvigorate communities. Nature-based solutions can buffer against extreme weather events and also mitigate the impacts of future climate change—a unique design opportunity that is critical to the sustainability and health of our communities.

Engineered solutions

To fulfill our promise to design with community in mind, we need to consider climate change in our project work. Engineered solutions continue to play a critical role in supporting communities as they adapt to climate change. Creating solutions that can stand up to repetitive weather extremes and last over many decades remains key to the future of community resiliency. Read More

Technology solutions

At Stantec, innovation is driven by our people and based on the practical experience they encounter in their projects. When it comes to climate change, our Innovations Office is driving the development of solutions that help our clients mitigate their risks to Earth’s changing climate.

Social-based solutions

As we adapt to the changing environment, we cannot underestimate the role social value plays. For solutions like coastal resilience and ecosystem restoration, incorporating diverse stakeholder involvement and social components into designs results in projects that more broadly benefit and contribute to the resilience of the community.
