Streamlining planning with our environmental engagement platform

Environmental Engagement, a platform that streamlines environmental documentation and stakeholder engagement throughout the environmental assessment process by presenting highly technical information in a user-friendly online and interactive format

Our online environmental engagement platform streamlines the environmental assessment process by presenting highly technical information in a user-friendly online and interactive format. First developed for clients in Australia, our scalable platform has now expanded globally.

Designed to complement and streamline the traditional paper-based environmental planning process, AECOM Environmental Engagement enables project teams to consolidate the many aspects of environmental studies including photos, visualizations, sound demonstrations, videos, models and narrative into a single data platform. Through the platform, teams create the online experience, review the content and then publish the final document for stakeholders. It also enables stakeholders to provide feedback directly to project proponents who can track community sentiment throughout the project lifecycle.

The new platform can be integrated with our recently launched virtual public consultation tool, which enables virtual community engagement in an interactive online platform. Together, these solutions provide powerful support to clients managing existing and future projects through the key planning and approval gates.

Our environmental engagement platform adds to our expanding suite of digital solutions that simplify and accelerate public reviews of infrastructure projects, improving outcomes for communities worldwide.

It has been used by clients around the world, including Highways England, for whom we created a purpose-built digital environmental impact statement, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers, for whom we devised the first ever digital statement compliant with the National Environmental Policy Act.
