Climate Solutions - Environment

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.

Climate change presents a new set of project challenges, with extreme weather impacting infrastructure, the environment, 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.

Whether facilitating stakeholder engagement on a complex permitting application, performing a climate analysis assessment to minimise risk, integrating nature-based carbon sequestration into ecosystem restoration or decommissioning plans, or developing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) related benchmarks, we’re helping our clients see every project through a climate lens—and then we help them act on what they find.

Only by addressing climate change today can we create the resilient and sustainable communities of tomorrow.

Planning for tomorrow today

Have you identified your corporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals? Do you need to engage stakeholders as part of your planning or materiality analysis? Are you looking to build a net zero strategy? Have you run various climate models to identify your vulnerabilities and risk, or do you need to secure financing to move the needle on your climate goals? No matter your level of climate action maturity, our Environmental Services team is here to support you every step of the way.

Adapting to Earth's changing climate

We are climate experts, biologists, geologists, archaeologists, hydrologists, engineers, regulatory experts, and risk assessors. We know that the built environment and natural environment must coexist with one another. Climate change presents a new set of challenges, where our infrastructure and communities need to adapt to future weather extremes. Through mitigation planning—including nature-based solutions—technology, design, and engineering principles, we can become more resilient and be part of the solution.

Looking towards net zero

We understand our clients' desire to mitigate their impacts on climate change. Why? Because we’ve pledged to be operational net zero. We understand your carbon reduction goals are driven by operational efficiencies, regulatory requirements, ESG commitments, benchmarking, and supporting employee health and safety. We are here to help you successfully reach those goals—together, we will measure, monitor, manage, and mitigate.
