Hunt Valley, Maryland (30 December 2019)—EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., PBC (EA), a leading provider of interdisciplinary environmental services, announced today that it has released its annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report for calendar year 2018—available for download from EA’s website at http://eaest.com/pdf/csr_2018_report.pdf.
EA’s 2018 CSR Report, which also serves as the company’s Public Benefit Corporation (PBC) Statement, was prepared in accordance with Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards: Core Option. This is EA’s fourth fully conformant GRI report and fourth consolidated CSR Report/PBC Statement. GRI is an internationally recognized sustainability reporting methodology that EA utilizes as a third-party voluntary standard to report on the promotion of the company’s public benefits. The report celebrates EA’s “Decade of Commitment”—the company’s 10-year milestone marking its commitment to sustainability as part of day-to-day operations and project activities. Highlighted in the report are EA’s 2018 acquisition of wastewater treatment laboratory, EnviTreat; 16% organization-wide reduction in net carbon footprint and commitments to increased offsets; EcoVadis “Gold” rating for the company’s CSR Program; and company-wide commitments to volunteering and environmental philanthropy, including continued partnership with Water For People (www.waterforpeople.org).
“In 2018, we celebrated our decade of commitment to sustainability and CSR. Looking back on 2008 when EA implemented our initial sustainability program and at what we have accomplished since is humbling. It truly demonstrates that EA is a community of employee-owners, who are making a difference for our clients and in the communities in which we live and work. We have much to be proud of,” explained Brian Lesinski, Senior Vice President and Director CSR.
