Sustainability

 

Improving environmental stewardship

Since our beginning, environmental stewardship has been a hallmark of our work at Parametrix. Responding to society’s increasing need for sustainability, we create solutions that deliver triple bottom line benefits of environmental stewardship, social equity, and economic progress. We help our clients solve complex infrastructure challenges every day. These solutions balance development needs with sound economics and environmentally responsible solutions that increase the resilience and productivity of ecosystems and our built environment.

In 2007, Parametrix established an internal Climate Change and Sustainability Panel to take our stewardship commitment further and to improve the environmental and social performance of our internal and external operations. Through this panel we have developed and adopted internal sustainability guidelines to assist employee-owners in making responsible choices in the workplace, and became a founding member of the Climate Registry. We have invested in our staff becoming LEED and Envision accredited professionals and achieving low impact development (LID) certification. As a company, Parametrix will continue to invest in research and development to create the tools and processes that provide meaningful measures of sustainability for our clients.
