Sustainability On-Call Program

Location: Washington


Cascadia implements Sound Transit’s ongoing environmental and sustainability programs, overseeing 17 subcontractors to efficiently meet all of the agency’s needs. As part of this ambitious program, Cascadia leads work in sustainability strategic planning, facilitation, and organizational change. Current efforts include updating Sound Transit’s agency-wide Sustainability Plan and annual inventory, developing strategies for climate adaptation and renewable energy, and implementing greener construction practices. For the Sustainability Plan, our team helped Sound Transit evaluate and revise its long-term targets, near-term initiatives, and metrics to address the agency’s most significant sustainability opportunities and align with regional strategies and goals. Cascadia is now evaluating the costs and benefits of five renewable energy scenarios as part of Sound Transit’s renewables strategy. 

Cascadia is very organized; their work product is thorough. I appreciated their flexibility and responsiveness. I just appreciated their ability to take our interests and put them into a tangible work product and a plan. The thoroughness of their work really led to a product that was very relevant to us and that we still use in our work. As a whole, the firm seems to be much more comfortable with field work than other consultants.
