Environmental liabilities, which are a part of almost every company’s asset portfolio and balance sheet, present our clients with regulatory, technical and social complexities that heighten risk and potentially reduce asset value. Throughout a company’s asset life cycle, ERM helps our clients manage these risks through strategic approaches, digital applications and best-fit technical methods that identify, assess and manage environmental liabilities. Through cross-functional strategic engagement, we work to transform environmental liabilities and legacy assets into a risk-adjusted portfolio, which supports favorable outcomes, alignment to sustainability goals, and social acceptance.

We do this by actively engaging with client teams to understand and respond to their specific and evolving needs and obligations through an end-to-end integration of site investigation, remediation, and asset decommissioning and retirement processes. We help our clients with:

  • Asset and portfolio management.
  • Options analysis and exit strategy.
  • Digital data collection, analysis, and portfolio dashboarding.
  • Liability assessments.
  • Asset retirement and/or redevelopment.
  • Regulatory adaptation strategies.
  • Litigation support.
  • Portfolio risk management for emerging issues such as new contaminants, regulatory changes, and stakeholder concern.

ERM is structured to encourage collaboration and networking among regional offices, providing opportunities to work with our national technical team and remediation technology experts to share best practices, access the best talent, and partner on consulting opportunities.
