Ardurra’s ESG Commitment
Ardurra was founded on principles that align with today’s environmental, social, and governance criteria. These standards are inherent in our business model and integral to the success and happiness of our employees, shareholders, clients, and communities.
Ardurra’s core businesses support our dedication to environmentally responsible and sustainable practices.
In addition to our contributions to the security of global water resources through our water and wastewater treatment services, Ardurra is on the leading edge of sustainability and energy recovery efforts in our facility designs, which incorporate solar arrays and biogas to energy, optimizing environmental benefits by maximizing the reduction of greenhouse gases and creating a low carbon intensity renewable natural gas.
Ardurra’s transportation services include bus rapid transit (BRT) and intelligent transportation systems (ITS). BRT implementation has proven to improve quality of life by reducing travel time, improving local air quality, curbing greenhouse gas emissions, and preventing road fatalities and crashes. Applying the modern technologies of ITS improves mobility, safety, air quality, and productivity.
Ardurra is an established leader in damage assessments, hazard mitigation, and grant management services. Our experts in disaster response and recovery, drainage management, flood control, and sea level rise ensure that Ardurra’s new and restoration/repair designs incorporate mitigation measures to build more sustainable and resilient infrastructure.
Ardurra encourages social diversity and is committed to philanthropic activities for our communities. We have established programs and continually seek to identify new ways to demonstrate this philosophy.
