Recent extreme weather events have demonstrated that our climate is changing. At Associated, we believe 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 to clients based on proven methods, drawing upon our understanding of the climate change process and the associated risks to infrastructure and the environment. We communicate risks and help identify adaptation measures to reduce climate risks as well as options to decrease greenhouse gas emissions
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.
