Climate Change and Sustainability
Statement on Climate Change
We recognize that climate change is largely caused by human activity and hinders this vision by negatively affecting natural ecosystems, economic returns, and community development. The resolution of this complex global problem will require multiple simultaneous strategies.
As “entrepreneurs with a technical soul” actively participating in the metals, energy and infrastructure sectors, Hatch is uniquely positioned, and obligated, to affect positive change on this issue as it is amongst the toughest challenges of our era.
Using our exceptional diverse teams, we aspire to apply our vast technical and business knowledge to designing and building practical, safe, and innovative solutions to combat climate change. Hatch takes a scientific, evidence-based approach to develop solutions pursuing the twin goals of:
- Reducing the release into, and ultimately the presence of greenhouse gases (GHG) in our atmosphere
- Adapting our built and natural environments for climate change impacts
Hatch intends to take a leading role in achieving these objectives by investigating, developing, and implementing the following strategies simultaneously, over what may be a prolonged period of transition away from carbon:
- Avoidance of carbon combustion (including the reduction in demand for energy and products requiring carbon)
- Reduction of CO2 generated by improving the efficient use of carbon
- Removal and sequestration of carbonaceous gases from our atmosphere (either at point source or directly from the atmosphere)
- Improvement of society’s resilience to the earth’s changing climate
