Fostering Local Skills While Protecting the Environment at Canada’s Enbridge Line 3 Pipeline Project

Hillary Johnston

Like any construction project, building a pipeline must balance completing the work on time and on budget with environmental protection. Golder recently helped support this balance while working Enbridge Line 3, a large pipeline project in Canada, in part by engaging local Indigenous communities and businesses to complete the work in an environmentally sound way.

Ashley Skinner

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is one of the world’s busiest – carrying about 74 million passengers and around five million tonnes of cargo in 2019. However, with the existing airport reaching capacity, an expansion was needed to cater for long-term air traffic demand and to strengthen Hong Kong’s status as an international aviation hub.

Untangling a Complex PFAS Picture at a Manufacturing Facility

Hillary Johnston

For half a century, a wide variety of industries have embraced Per-and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (collectively known as PFAS) for their unique surfactant properties and their ability to repel oil and water. This meant that these compounds have been used in a wide array of products, as diverse as fire fighting foam, cleaning products, non-stick cookware, food packaging, cosmetics, and breathable outerwear. With the rising concerns about the potential impacts these substances can have on human health and the environment, PFAS are becoming a focus of concern in many parts of the world.

Actionable Steps on Climate Change Risk for Glencore

Hillary Johnston

While there are many uncertainties around climate change, it is possible to understand the risks, plan, and take effective action. Companies that take part in a rigorous planning process are much better positioned to weather the risks associated with future climate scenarios. This is what global resources giant Glencore was seeking when it asked Golder to provide support during the development of a climate change plan for its Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations in response to their corporate Sustainability Development Goals.
