BUILDING SUSTAINABILITY through the development of strategies for cost-effective management of resources and personnel to promote responsible environmental stewardship, from the executive office to the field.

TechLaw services include data quality protocols and tools such as Environmental Management Systems (EMS), which provide continuous improvement in attaining sustainability goals and enable annual performance evaluation for green benchmarking.

We provide solutions for Greenhouse Gas (GHG) inventory and reduction (facilities, construction and remediation), carbon neutrality and “net zero” energy building strategies, pollution prevention and waste elimination, sustainable acquisition/supply chain management, community outreach and conferences, and training and education related to sustainability initiatives.

TechLaw’s hydrogeologists, engineers and scientists have provided guidance and oversight on several site cleanup programs that are focused on green remediation to reduce environmental and ecological impacts.

George AFB
Sample Project: At George Air Force Base in California, which was closed by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission (BRAC), the TechLaw team assisted U.S. EPA in evaluating the effects of a groundwater treatment system on the environment, looking at areas such as GHG emissions and how they could be minimized. TechLaw found that in 6½ years, more than 1½ billion gallons of contaminated water was treated, cleaning up 232 pounds of trichloroethylene and creating 1,598 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent. This information is being considered by the BRAC in developing future remedial strategies at polluted bases, and is being used by EPA to evaluate George AFB as part of the Environmental Responsible Redevelopment and Reuse (ER3) program.
