Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation

Incorporating climate change considerations during infrastructure planning, design and operations is becoming a critical factor for stakeholders across all client groups and touches all our lines of business. Project objectives must increasingly address opportunities for mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts. These impacts can occur at any point during the project lifecycle: from construction through decommissioning.

Aggressive greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets are being established by many jurisdictions to mitigate and avoid potentially severe projected climate change impacts. Achieving these reductions will affect all sectors of the economy and require significant changes to how public and private infrastructure is designed and operated. We actively collaborate with our clients to assess, quantify and verify the lifecycle GHG emissions associated with their existing or proposed infrastructure and to develop strategies and solutions to reduce emissions.

Our clients are also moving quickly to prepare for and adapt to a changing climate and increasing severe weather events. Our team of climate change and infrastructure specialists can assess your unique asset and service vulnerabilities and help identify adaptive measures that will help you manage risk and ensure resiliency under considerable uncertainty.

Make us your first call when looking to address opportunities for mitigating and adapting to climate change impacts.
