GES is in pursuit of a WHC certificate for a project designed to enhance wildlife habitats at a capped landfill site. Working with a local Boy Scout Troop, GES built and installed duck boxes, blue bird boxes, pollinator boxes and turtle logs, and assessed the wetland and grassland habitats. By undertaking this project, our client has benefited from positive community engagement, social media promotion, increased ESG scores, carbon credits, and cost savings derived from less mowing.
