Climate Change Adaptation & Mitigation

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.

    • Talk with your key clients at least three times per week – but on relevant topics. Develop the relationship to the point where there is frank, honest feedback, then be sure to act on it.  Response time is a differentiating factor.
    • Life is part of work, and work is part of life. Life is not work, and work is not life. Do activities where the learning never ends. Outdoors – horse riding, fly fishing, running, cycling, kayaking, and hiking/backpacking.
