"We help clients achieve corporate social responsibility and environmental stewardship when designing, developing, operating and decommissioning a project."- Mervyn Mason, Associate, Sr. Impact Assessment & Biodiversity Specialist, Australia
Our globally integrated network — geologists, hydrologists, hydrogeologists, geochemists, biodiversity specialists, social consulting, and health and safety practitioners — brings immense experience to each project. They bring knowledge of international best practices and the ability to navigate complex local regulatory and cultural environments.
From performing the ESIA in order to gain approval for mining on the Solomon Islands off Papua New Guinea to incorporating geomorphic solutions into a flagship stream restoration project through a major Canadian city, we provide the multidisciplinary services needed to help you achieve your project objectives.
Golder’s environmental teams are also sought for assistance in large-scale environmental remediation. We were among the first companies to begin remediation at a major tailings dam breach in Brazil.
