Assignment

A transport company mandated Golder to develop a customized version of GoldSET, to integrate the environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainable development into their remediation projects.

Our role

The indicators of the customized tool were selected based on the needs and characteristics of the client's corporate sustainability objectives and projects, and international guidelines. The customized tool also includes a module for estimating energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. A pilot test study was carried out to demonstrate the effectiveness of the adapted version of GoldSET for site remediation. Their own tool is now being used for the planning of all remedial projects of impacted sites across Canada and the USA, and thus enables decision makers to evaluate the short and long-term impacts of potential projects in a simple and systematic way. The tool also allows its users to understand the conceptual model of project sites. Training has been provided to the client's staff and consultants to ensure quality and performance of ongoing and future sustainability assessments.
