Climate Change

Recent extreme weather events have demonstrated that our climate is changing. At Associated Environmental, we have a responsibility to consider climate change on our projects. Our experience includes climate modelling, climate projections, interpreting existing climate models, designing sustainable buildings and other infrastructure, conducting climate change vulnerability assessments, and planning and designing infrastructure to adapt to our changing climate.  

We provide sound advice based on proven methods, while remaining leaders in understanding the climate change process and the associated risks to infrastructure and the environment. We communicate climate change risks to clients, and incorporate climate change knowledge into our work in consistent and meaningful ways.

Infrastructure Canada has recently published Climate Lens, a new set of requirements for large Infrastructure Canada-funded projects. These requirements call for greenhouse gas mitigation and climate change resiliency assessments. Our Climate Change Advisors and Experts can assist clients with completing climate mitigation and resiliency assessments in support of their application for financial support.

    • Water is vital to sustaining life. However, society is often faced with too much, too little, and/or degraded water quality. I enjoy working with a variety of stakeholders and specialists to develop innovative and sustainable approaches to protecting this precious resource.
    • I feel blessed to live in Canada where we have vibrant communities with quick access to the great outdoors. Exploring and discovering new places, whether in urban or remote locations, keeps me energized.
