Putting Words into Action

Through more than four decades as a firm dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of the natural and built environments, EA has developed a keen social awareness and appreciation for the precious and limited resources that our planet has to offer. As a leader in the environmental field, we hold ourselves accountable in our sustainability initiatives and seek out opportunities to support the communities we serve through participation in neighborhood and watershed cleanup projects and various outreach programs to mentor our nation’s youth in such topics as materials recycling, waste minimization, energy savings, and related environmental and sustainability topics.


Corporate Sustainable Business Practices

EA’s corporate sustainable business practices, in concert with our Sustainability Message, guide our operations in growing in a sustainably conscious manner. Our goals embrace a broader perspective and commitment to sustainability principles by:

  • Encouraging reduction of consumption through sustainability awareness, efficient practices, and use of technology
  • Encouraging environmental stewardship through procurement, recycling, and end-of-life practices for goods and services utilized through our supply chain
  • Making sustainability and the importance of integrating sustainable practices into our daily practices, operations, and services a paramount concern
  • Providing recognition to offices and employees that demonstrate extraordinary leadership and/or performance in support of EA’s sustainability practices.

Sustainability Initiatives

Since 2008, EA has developed, integrated, implemented, and continually improved sustainable business practices and external reporting across EA. In fact, EA’s internal sustainability program was recognized by the Environmental Business Journal in 2009 with a Business Achievement Award for innovation. Highlights of EA’s internal programs include:

  • Implementation of a performance measurement and reporting program based on the Global Reporting Initiative requirements. The program includes data tracking and reporting across 34 performance indicators addressing environmental, economic, and social perspectives.
  • Development and publication of two Corporate Sustainability Reports based on Global Reporting Initiative reporting format, including comprehensive carbon footprinting of operations.
  • Implementation of an internal EA “Sustainer” program providing points-of-contact in each operation or corporate department. The program has raised internal awareness and provides local knowledge sharing on sustainable practices throughout the company.
  • Integration of sustainable business practices into core service lines through cross-disciplinary working groups targeting green remediation, climate adaptation, and sustainable infrastructure service areas.

As a client services organization, our primary focus is to educate and apply sustainability not only in our own firm, but also to advise and assist our clients in doing so. Only then can we truly have the broader impact on our community that we seek.
