FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. Issues Corporate Sustainability Report
Hunt Valley, Maryland (26 October 2012)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, issued its biannual Corporate Sustainability Report today, reporting the company’s results and accomplishments during calendar years 2010 and 2011. In keeping with EA’s sustainability commitment, this report is available for review exclusively online at www.eaest.com.
This year’s report focuses on the company’s progress toward goals established in its 2009 report. The report includes EA’s first scorecard based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework, which is generally accepted as the international standard for sustainability reporting and the world’s most used guidelines in this area.
In addition, the report incorporates data from an analysis of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly and indirectly attributable to EA. The inventory’s calculations are based on standards developed by The World Resources Institute and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development—the most widely used international accounting tools for governments and businesses to identify, quantify, and manage GHG emissions.
“The success of our internal initiatives depends largely on our ability to continually find new and better ways to support, measure, and communicate the benefits of sustainability in every aspect of our business,” said Michael Battle, EA’s Chief Operating Officer. “We continually seek out means to apply sustainable practices within our own firm and, as a service provider, this enhances our ability to advise and assist our clients in doing the same.”
“As a leading environmental science and engineering firm, this report reaffirms our longstanding commitment to being a good steward of the environment and contributing positively to the communities in which we live and serve,” added Ian MacFarlane, EA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We encourage our employees to continuously seek out new and better ways to incorporate sustainability principles into our everyday decisions and actions. The energy applied to EA’s sustainability efforts fuels innovative thinking and helps make EA a great place to work."
