The Nature Conservancy and CH2M HILL Team Up in an Effort to Integrate Natural and Conventional Infrastructure

CH2M HILL and The Nature Conservancy announced a new five-year collaboration to bring innovative and integrated engineering and environmental solutions into the global marketplace. The new collaboration between the Conservancy and CH2M HILL will focus on three key areas: Reducing community risks associated with climate change and extreme weather; Securing freshwater through stronger source-protection; Increasing urban conservation. This collaboration has evolved from a number of previous engagements between the Conservancy and CH2M HILL in the Gulf of Mexico, one of the most notable being a project to build oyster reefs and other natural habitats to protect aging oil and gas pipelines, while providing coastal ecosystem benefits. The organizations will share their expertise and resources to pursue new joint efforts on the ground in key regions, and evaluate, test and publish new scientific findings and associated business cases for integrating natural infrastructure with conventional infrastructure, which are expected to show the way toward new design and building practices. The collaboration will initially focus on four key US geographies: the West coast; the Mid-Atlantic seaboard most impacted by Hurricane Sandy; the Upper Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico -- with the goal of learning together, and continuing to promote the viability of natural infrastructure solutions to some of great sustainability challenges.
