SUSTAINABILITY

CREÄ’s practice is founded on the principles of sustainable development. To date, much of our work in this arena has involved cutting edge research and advocacy. Our staff has lent their expertise and knowledge of this burgeoning field of practice in leading discussions aimed at transforming planning and the city design. Our reports speak to new ways of conceiving, regulating and inspiring development that is efficient, fiscally responsible, equitable, and respectful of nature. As interest in this field grows, we find ourselves hosting education and training sessions with the public, elected officials, engineers etc. We have also been assisting our clients in understanding how these principles can be meaningfully integrated into everyday planning and building practice. Our work in the arena of adapting to climate change and creating energy independent communities falls within our sustainable development practice. We delivered one of the first greenhouse gas emission studies and energy plans in the northwest and have spoken widely on the subject.
