Today, more than ever before, environmental impacts are linked to economic development, regulatory partnering, community planning, and public policy debate and formulation. The issues are staggering, but the client rewards and community benefits can be high.
CERM’s core competence is working collaboratively to engineer the right solutions, educate key stakeholders, while achieving economically vital solutions to meet the needs of our clients and their partners (corporate, community, regulatory). Our client-focused project delivery approach to risk management starts with a dedicated team of engineers, scientists, geologists, project managers and community specialists. We prioritize community needs and the human environment.
