Cleaner sites, better assets, more value
WSP provides design, management, implementation and strategic advisory services for contaminated land remediation, environmental due diligence, waste management, and environment and social impact assessments.
We have delivered successful projects to governments, local authorities, asset owners and other organizations across various land uses, sectors and industries, including chemical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology, roads and rail, oil and gas, mines and quarries, industrial and brownfield sites, as well as commercial developments and residential buildings.
Restoring contaminated land and rehabilitating brownfield sites
Our contaminated land management and soil remediation teams can improve the environmental quality of legacy assets and brownfield sites – as well as maximize their commercial value. With comprehensive services in soil and groundwater contamination, we help clients not only protect their existing assets, but also future-proof them to cope with an ever-changing climate and regulatory landscape.
Our environmental site investigation and due diligence specialists offer asset-specific insights to reduce and manage environmental liabilities, helping stakeholders with better decision-making related to refinancing, property transfers, mergers and acquisitions, and changes in operations.
Managing landfill waste and hazardous materials
When it comes to managing landfill waste, our teams of specialists can advise on regional waste policies, implement waste reduction programs and strategies for corporations and new developments and provide technical feasibility studies for new waste technologies.
Evaluating and controlling chemical, physical and biological hazardous waste is also important when redeveloping brownfield sites or renovating or demolishing older assets. Our hazardous waste management specialists can develop action plans, intervention tools and procedures to minimize the impacts of hazardous waste.
We can also help organizations across a wide range of industries to identify, manage and mitigate current and future risks and liabilities associated with Environment, Health & Safety (EHS).
Assessing environmental and social impacts
Although compliance and commercial considerations are typically emphasized with projects related to contaminated land, hazardous materials or due diligence, we can also help stakeholders quantify, manage and minimize the associated social and environmental risks.
Our Environmental and Social Impact Assessment and Planning teams help projects with gaining approvals, permitting, licensing, and planning support with an understanding of local conditions. With Strategic Environmental Assessments and Sustainability Appraisals we help ensure that sustainability considerations are taken into account at a strategic level in planning, policy and program development.
