Climate Adaptation & Flood Resilience > Corporate Sustainability Initiatives



Beyond Compliance: Strengthening a Local Ecosystem

Our 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.


A new vision for addressing operational footprints in lasting ways.

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 help clients address biodiversity, water quality, and climate risk by offering locally appropriate ecological uplift projects with measurable results.


Restoring resiliency at the community level.

These custom projects restore resiliency at the community level, 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 compared to conservation projects and many other offset strategies. Enhanced water quality and floodwater resilience from the restored site offer additional, compelling 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.
