Remediation & Regeneration

Remediation & Regeneration

ERM partners with clients to transform environmental liabilities and legacy assets into risk-adjusted portfolios. By combining best practice approaches with digital solutions, we help clients unlock maximum value and accelerate regeneration opportunities for their assets  

De-risk complex asset portfolios

Environmental liabilities are a part of almost every organization’s asset portfolio and balance sheet. The regulatory, technical and social complexities of these liabilities can heighten reputational risk and reduce asset value.

The cleanup and management of contaminated sites is complex and costly. Even organizations with well-established remediation management systems and processes frequently experience increased costs due to unanticipated issues.

The growing focus on sustainability and decarbonization by regulators and investors means more organizations are looking to optimize operational footprints, decommission legacy assets, remediate contaminated sites and explore regeneration opportunities.

Stakeholder pressure is growing to implement remediation solutions that leave a positive, lasting legacy by delivering nature-positive outcomes and supporting the social aspects of a just transition.

Maximize value from legacy liability portfolios by meeting regulatory, sustainability and fiscal goals.

Drive portfolio optimization and operational efficiency

From liability assessments to exit strategies, ERM supports clients throughout the asset lifecycle to generate maximum value from legacy liability assets by simultaneously addressing regulatory obligations, reserve goals, non-technical risk and sustainability commitments.
