ESG is more than just a buzzword – capital assets in Alberta will need to be constructed to withstand decades of use, change, and exposure to weather extremes. Integrating resiliency and sustainability into all public capital assets will help build future-focused infrastructure, guard against risks presented by floods and wildfires, and support positive environmental change through sustainable materials, lower emissions, and more efficient energy use. Construction and engineering firms can help maximize ESG goal setting and reporting to become industry leaders.
