Across the Board remediated brownfields increase our quality of life

For every 50k sites assessed and cleaned up approximately 90K jobs were created, an acre of redeveloped brownfield equates to 4.5 acres of greenfields preserved, within a one mile radius property values can increase by 2 to 3 percent and can lead to $2.2B in local tax revenue nationwide. Last but not least, brownfields can reduce carbon emissions by increasing the use of public transportation and walkability.*

From Source to Tap - life's sustaining resource relies on us to restore its health

Only 3% of the Earth's water is fresh. Of that 3%, only 1% is readily available for human consumption. Protecting and restoring groundwater is critical as 99% of available freshwater originates in aquifers. This vast yet limited resource is constantly facing environmental challenges that requires sustainable management practices.*

Indoor Air Quality promotes and protects public health

It's no coincidence that shelter forms the foundation in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. We spend over 90% percent of our time indoors where contaminant concentrations can be up to 2 to 5 times higher than outside. Overall, a high level of indoor air quality promotes health, worker's productivity, student performance and occupants comfort levels.*
