Future Ready thinking
Although emphasis on legacy issues such as contaminated land and asbestos still permeates environmental due diligence, there has been a significant shift to quantifying the risks associated with emerging contaminants, climate change, social aspects (such as labor and resource scarcity) and looking at the impacts of energy legislation that is driving energy efficiency measures.
Examples of these emerging concerns and trends include the increased awareness of the wide-spread per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination and its presence in an array of industrial and commercial products. WSP has the multi-disciplinary capabilities to interpret the liability landscape, recognize and define current and likely future obligations, and minimize impacts on transactions, business operations and employees. On the energy efficiency front, WSP has helped clients identify solutions and opportunities such as savings through energy management, resource-use reduction, best practice improvements and the commercial merit of renewables and other technologies.
