Understanding Resilience

Creating resilience in a changing climate

Resilience in the face of climate change will drive much of the work we do in the coming years. Our ambition is to lead the way in providing innovative, integrated and sustainable solutions to address the climate challenges we face.

Our technical disciplines work collaboratively to combine analytical, engineering, social and nature-inspired solutions to support our clients in adapting and building resilience to climate change. Working together to discover solutions, we help communities, business and the environment be aware, adapt, respond and recover from shocks.

With the increased risks we’re facing from climate change and the need to build resilience into our assets and communities and mitigate climate change by adopting low-carbon solutions, we are faced with increasingly complex challenges.

Steve Maslen, Head of Environment and Sustainability, and Tony Moran, Head of Engineering.
