As leaders in the Marine and Environmental Services, Foreshore understands that as obtaining Net Zero carbon emissions is not only crucial to our employees, but also our customers and the greater community. We have focused on 3 core beliefs to help reach our 2050 goal of a Zero carbon footprint. We believe balance is not only important in our business, but also in our employees and client’s lives.
To help protect our environment while maintaining our highest level of standard, Foreshore is helping by recognizing positive behaviors and habits in our staff.
We recognize that our goal of NetZero by 2050 will only be achieved through dedication and affirmative action.
The Foreshore family is the very core of our business, and we are committed to being socially responsible. We believe that if we all do our own small part, it can add up to very positive changes.
These programs help improve mental health, while affecting our environments in a positive manner.
Being a coastal company, we understand the importance of a healthy ocean. Whether we are in the ocean or on it, we take every opportunity to leave the ocean better than we found it. Through big efforts like shoreline restoration or small efforts like a local beach cleanup, we try to keep ocean health at the front of our minds.
Our mission is to have these objectives at the front of mind all the time. Every decision we make we lean on our core beliefs to make those decisions to have the most positive impact we can for our employees, clients, communities, and environment. We believe we can make a difference, and we strive for excellence.
Our ongoing efforts have already started to show positive results. Since 2021 we continue to evolve our focus for continued sustainability.
Environmental Agency Liaison
The environment increasingly plays a critical role in whether a project can move forward. Foreshore’s personnel have a solid grasp of the interaction between the environment, design requirements, construction methodology, public good and the personalities involved in the approval process. This understanding has been developed with a combination of field experience and direct negotiation. This amalgamation of skills allows the early identification of “show stoppers” allowing them to be addressed with little or no harm during the project planning stage. Foreshore sees the handling of environmental approvals as a key factor in a project’s success and to this end manages its’ agency relationships closely and professionally.
Environmental issues common to marine and aquatic works include potential impact of new structures, shading, contaminant release, biological impact, loss of water column, turbidity, sedimentation, erosion, pressure waves and alteration of wave energy impacts. Understanding of baseline field data collection methodologies and the development of habitat management guidelines, compensation strategies and mitigation processes allows Foreshore to efficiently come to consensus on habitat issues that are important to the environmental regulatory agencies.
Time in the industry has created an ability to quickly identify and respond to contemporary issues that influence regulatory policy, consultants, communities and contractors. This ability has greatly contributed to a track record of success in delivering environmentally approvable marine projects on time and on budget. These include the management of projects from concept to completion including design, environmental approval, construction and sale. The majority of Foreshore’s projects have required direct contact with a variety of agencies and levels of government regarding their bylaws, policies, guidelines and legislation.
