Corporate Sustainability Initiatives

Beyond Compliance: Strengthening a Local Ecosystem.

RES Corporate Sustainability Initiatives create ecosystem gains for our clients across the board—air, water, biodiversity, and community—delivering measurable results that help increase climate and ecosystem resiliency.

At RES, we recognize that scaled businesses, economies, and industries require resources and have environmental consequences. For businesses to continue to grow, our natural world must be revitalized and protected.

We believe a restorative economy is possible, and a new vision is addressing operational footprints in lasting ways. For companies seeking continuous improvement on environmental ESG/CSR metrics, our Sustainability Initiatives deliver tangible results where public expectations meet corporate social responsibility. We are uniquely equipped to help clients confront biodiversity, water quality, and climate risk by offering locally appropriate ecological uplift projects with measurable results.

RES serves as an expert design partner and takes full responsibility for implementation and long-term
monitoring. These custom projects restore and sustain wetlands, streams, and species habitats, producing tangible co-benefits documented through Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Among these are locally beneficial carbon offsets with an easily verifiable, higher direct net gain than conservation projects and many other offset strategies. For many companies, enhanced water quality and floodwater resilience from the restored site offer additional, compelling operational and community benefits.

Often these projects are aligned with both client operational goals and critical conservation priority areas, as identified by local community partnerships. They can connect your business with your customers, employees, and others in communities in which you’re located.
