...we told you that by 2023, the demand for environment clean-up and remediation services is projected to grow to nearly $ 130 billion globally? That by 2050, nearly five billion people will be living in what scientists are calling an entirely new climate? That current data estimates that Earth’s resources can only support at most one-fifth of the present global population with clean water, land, air and energy for a first world country standard of living?
At Jacobs, we think differently about the future because today’s challenges of urbanization, resource scarcity, climate change, digital proliferation and security demand innovative approaches to deliver a more connected, sustainable world. With a fierce commitment to the spaces we inhabit, both globally and environmentally, we’re continually reinvigorating our efforts to be responsible stewards of the natural world, as we contribute forward-thinking sustainable solutions for our clients.
What if we showed you how the world’s largest groundwater recharge wetlands are restoring the ecological functions of the historically degraded onsite lakes and wetlands, while providing resilient water for the future? How an old coal-powered steam plant transformed into a model of modern efficiency and sustainability, producing enough electricity and thermal energy to power an entire University. And what if we showed you how a 20-hectare oyster reef expansion is improving water quality and bringing economic and social benefits to local communities?
The issues we face today and those we’ll face tomorrow inspire us to dig deeper to understand the interplay of multifaceted variables shaping the future, ensuring that we conceive and deliver solutions that connect people and places with the means to work smarter and live better, and make an enduring, positive difference in the world:
- Creating “best for the world” solutions to critical environmental challenges – from remediation and redevelopment, water and wastewater, environmental assessment and sustainability to environmental compliance and climate change.
- Transforming intangible ideas into intelligent, technology-driven experiences that safely improve speed, while reducing resource impacts and ultimately enhancing returns on investments.
- Advancing innovations that improve energy efficiency, resilience, conservation, reuse and reclamation of vital air, land and water resources.
