Climate Change and Sustainability
ICF helps transportation agencies and private-sector companies embrace sustainability as a response to the threat of climate change and as a framework for environmentally, socially, and economically sound decisions.
ICF understands the impact of climate-related legislation on new port, highway, or transit projects and how to accommodate for climate considerations in infrastructure protection and sustainability strategies. We guide clients to cost-effective ways to reduce emissions, respond to new energy policy and customer concerns, and increase resilience in anticipation of climate and extreme weather changes.
ICF offers decades of leadership in generating solutions to climate challenges. Our experience helping clients connect climate-friendly transportation practices to the bigger picture includes:
Clients benefit from ICF's integrated approach to sustainability and comprehensive support. Our multidisciplinary teams help transportation clients conduct early technical research, recruit partners, reach out to stakeholders, and manage operations.
Livability and Land Use
ICF helps cities, counties, and regional planning agencies incorporate land use, livability, and the key pillars of sustainability—the environment, the economy, and social equity—into transportation planning.
For organizations integrating land use, livability, and sustainability into transportation planning, ICF delivers comprehensive expertise in areas such as:
Because of our extensive work on transportation projects at the federal, state, and local levels, we have a comprehensive grasp of the planning and policy issues at the nexus of transportation, the environment, the economy, and livable communities. This knowledge strengthens our ability to deliver value to client engagements, whether promoting sustainable land use development patterns, helping organizations evaluate transportation options, or guiding them toward organization-wide sustainability measures.
