WSP Receives Two Prestigious Industry Awards

WSP has been selected to receive two industry awards from the Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ), announces Jan Chizzonite, director of WSP’s US Environmental practice. EBJ is a business research publication which provides high-value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry. The awards will be presented at the Business Achievement Awards banquet on March 11, 2015, which kicks off the Environmental Industry Summit XIII, in San Diego, California, which runs through March 13, 2015.


The first award, recognizing New Practice Areas, showcases the introduction of WSP’s Industrial Energy and Water Management practice. The suite of services offered under this practice include strategic planning with a bottom-up and top-down approach to evaluating water and energy consumption reduction measures, the management of downstream waste and wastewater generation, and the control of associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts.  “There is an increased demand, especially within the industrial manufacturing sector, for energy and water programs that not only reduce operating costs but also provide environmental benefits,” said Mr. Chizzonite. “The services we have incorporated into our environmental business directly respond to and support our clients in achieving these efforts.” 

WSP will also be honored with a Business Achievement Award for Mergers & Acquisitions for the recent acquisition of Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) from Balfour Beatty plc. The acquisition has created one of the largest pure-play multidisciplinary consulting firms in the world, with combined revenue of $4.8 billion and approximately 32,000 employees in 500 offices located in 39 countries. The combined entity employs approximately 2,500 environmental professionals providing environmental, planning, sustainability, energy efficiency, and climate preparedness services to clients around the globe.  "I am pleased with this acquisition, as we become an industry leader, with the ability to deliver more expertise and services to our client base across the world," said Pierre Shoiry, President and Chief Executive Officer of the combined entity.
