What You Need to Know

Are you going to meet future challenges or be continually run over by them?
The world is integrated—and your decision-making should be too.

How are you addressing the replacement of infrastructure, affordable housing, community recreation, and economic development needs?
Crumbling infrastructure, an aging workforce and climate change will only add to the accelerating rate of change. Conventional decision-making processes are and will be inadequate. And given the public is being asked to assume the risks and associated costs, the public must be involved in the decisions, and it can only do so when in full possession of facts.

Are you adapting to changing environmental regulations, social responsibility demands and the need for financial capital resources?
By addressing social, environmental and economic issues at the time decisions are made, sustainable solutions can be found that are cost-effective, reduce risk, enhance well being, increase engagement and respect the environment.

Taking the First Step

If you can’t see the forest for the trees, where are you going?
And how are you going to get there without tripping over the roots?

When working with business or government we begin by identifying and assessing the impacts of each issue. This phase enables individual, collective and comparative analysis—a critical path to determining priorities and finally, developing an effective plan of action.

Kim Fowler not only helps to integrate economic, social and environmental issues but also develops plans with short to long-term goals or plans for projects—large and small.

Unique challenges require fundamental change and difficult decisions, which in turn, determine future legacies. When do you want to start?
