AECOM received four Business Achievement Awards from two leading environmental industry publications’ annual award competitions.
The Climate Change Business Journal recognized AECOM for its Renewable Energy practice, and Arauco Carbon Footprinting Analysis (CFA) project. Citing Renewable Energy activities in 16 countries, CCBJ noted AECOM’s geothermal, hydroelectric, wind, solar, marine/tidal, and organic waste to energy conversion projects in Africa, Asia, Australia/New Zealand, Europe, and North and South Americas. CCBJ also recognized AECOM for assisting Arauco, Chile’s largest forest products company, with a CFA of direct / indirect greenhouse gas emissions from operations and value chain across Chile, Brazil, and Argentina—including 30 plants and mills, harvesting operations, raw materials and product transportation, as well as carbon stored in sustainably managed plantations and finished products in use.
The Environmental Business Journal recognized AECOM for Green and Sustainable Remediation (GSR) and its Environmental Mobile Application for Pipelines (EMAP). AECOM’s GSR practice has integrated green remediation principles across the full remediation process, addressed core environmental, social, and economic aspects; developed a sustainable remediation tool for the U S Air Force Center for Engineering and Environment; contributed extensively to the technical literature of sustainable remediation; and taken GSR to the field in nine green remediation projects including the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Grand Award winner at a superfund site in Minnesota. AECOM’s award for Business Achievement for Information recognized its innovative EMAP, a proprietary environmental information technology that improves the efficiency and quality of critical field data collection, storage, analysis and reporting required for environmental permitting and major project developments. EMAP is already in use on pipeline projects ranging from 100 to 850 miles, and new wind farm developments.
