Learn about environmental risks to watch for when considering a transition to clean energy.

From pollution to progress

Changes in the energy sector are here and rapidly evolving. Financial incentives coupled with regulatory requirements and corporate goodwill have companies across the globe investigating a shift to clean energy. Yet, embracing this type of opportunity is not without its risks.

  • Contamination risks that are associated with commonly targeted transition sites
  • Opportunities for financial incentives and tax benefits associated with the redevelopment of Brownfield properties
