Contaminated sites and sustainable remediation management

Helping clients manage contaminated sites and handle environmental liability, at any scale.

Environmental liabilities typically associated with soil and groundwater contamination are a growing problem for corporations. This is due to increasingly protective regulatory standards, and more regulatory requirements. For example, changing contaminant disclosure requirements. The growing need for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting, and societal scrutiny especially from local communities and landowners also adds to this challenge.

Companies with sites impacted by contamination face significant financial, regulatory, and reputational risks.

Many site assessment and remediation programs are poorly designed and mismanaged. This means environmental liabilities are never properly dealt with and remain on the balance sheets.

But contaminated sites also present an opportunity. Your company can realize substantial financial, environmental, biodiversity, and social value gains if liabilities are effectively managed and sites are restored to a beneficial use.

Managing emerging contaminants

We’re at the forefront of developing site assessment and remediation strategies to address the world’s emerging contaminants, such as PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances) and asbestos. 

PFAS and asbestos are difficult to destroy and they won’t naturally degrade. This makes assessing and remediating these emerging contaminants a complex task.

Our approach to assess and mitigate the risk of asbestos, PFAS and other emerging contaminants provides you with sustainable, durable, and cost-effective solutions. These solutions are compliant with regulatory requirements and accepted by relevant stakeholders.
