Infrastructure is at an inflection point. Across the globe, rapid population growth, accelerated urbanization, and increasing climate change loads are placing more demand on our built and natural environments than ever before. And while history tells us that this is an industry that moves slowly, the combination of these challenges means we are likely to see more change in infrastructure in the next five years than we have in the last 25. The time has come to associate sustainability not with trade-offs, but with enduring performance, competitive advantage, and lifetime value.
Individual action on climate change is great, but real change requires radical collaboration and systemic rethinks. At RVA, we partner with municipalities, government agencies, private sector businesses, and leading environmental organizations to develop comprehensive climate strategies, increase resilience, reduce emissions, and drive inclusive growth. We’re constantly engaged in the research and development of industry standards on climate vulnerability assessments, GHG assessments, and adaptation measures to deliver uncompromising end-to-end support for our clients and communities – always striving to be better tomorrow than we are today. Through our climate change services, we give our clients the agility, capabilities, and insights they need to accelerate their journey to net-zero and drive climate-led transformation towards a better, more hopeful future.
