We’re fighting climate change by approaching decarbonization from every angle. From energy generation, storage and use to built-environment design and operation, we know the most effective, cost-efficient ways to cut carbon emissions – every step of the way.
Decarbonizing the energy industry
We’re helping decarbonize the power sector and heavy industry in every way: Minimizing risk for carbon capture and storage technologies. Evaluating and mitigating the risks associated with onshore and offshore energy facilities. Supporting clean-energy technologies like wind, solar, hydrogen, geothermal and nuclear power. Advancing technologies for better, more efficient energy storage. Electrifying transportation systems. And more.
Our scientists, engineers and software developers work with you to develop unique technologies and solutions that are enabling a transition to clean energy.
Decarbonizing The Built Environment
We’re serious about building a cleaner, healthier built environment. How? By measuring, tracking and eliminating embodied and operational carbon in everything from individual buildings to entire neighborhoods. By creative use of low- or no-carbon materials, like mass timber. By developing and sharing technological tools, like Beacon, that help architects and engineers design more sustainable buildings. By designing durable structures that minimize embodied carbon. And by supporting building renovation, rehabilitation and adaptive reuse to curb emissions from demolition and replacement.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DECARBONIZATION
Our commitment to cutting carbon starts at home.?Our?corporate responsibility department is dedicated to reducing the operational carbon of our business, with the goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. We were the first primarily structural engineering firm to join the American Institute of Architects 2030 Commitment. We were an early adopter of the Architecture 2030 Challenge, which targets carbon neutrality in all new buildings and renovations by 2030. And we're a platinum sponsor of the Carbon Leadership Forum and?an inaugural member?of the?SE 2050 Commitment, a program that calls on structural engineers to achieve net-zero embodied carbon in their projects by 2050.?
