Across the globe, there is a growing awareness of the urgent need to restore and protect the natural environment. Mitigating climate change through the reduction of greenhouse gases is at the heart of discussions between businesses, regulators and communities. As a result, environmental consultants are now in high demand.
As one of the world’s leading professional services firms, WSP understands how important it is to deliver ecologically sound solutions to clients. This can be seen at each stage of every project we undertake: for example, the company cleans up environments and restores natural habitats that have been disturbed in the past, such as forests, streams and wetlands. We also improve our clients’ processes to minimise their carbon footprint and waste generation, as well as help them achieve a net positive impact on biodiversity.
On top of this, WSP advises on the design and construction of a future-proof world. Through our Future Ready programme, we account for coming trends in climate change, society, technology and resource use, and integrate these trends into our services. In this way, we provide solutions that prepare our clients for today and the years to come.
Meeting today’s challenges
With many clients adjusting their business strategies to include carbon neutrality as a top priority, global warming not only affects the way we operate, but also the types of services we offer. Through our environmental consultancy practice, Future Ready programme, company culture and purpose, we are positioned to become one of the leading firms supporting clients facing the huge climate challenge.
Our environmental consultancy services feed into our core role, which is to plan, design, manage and engineer our communities to thrive. We believe these services are as strategically important as our other engineering and professional services. At WSP, we place our environmental offering at the forefront of our strategy to ensure clients have access to high-quality, multidisciplinary advice.
Furthermore, we are committed to minimising our carbon footprint: we aim to achieve a 25 percent reduction in the market-based greenhouse gas emissions produced across our global operations by 2030.
