During a signing ceremony last week at the Arctic Frontiers Conference in Tromsø, Norway, Ramboll Environ and Arctic Slope Regional Corporation (ASRC) announced an agreement to seek and evaluate opportunities to work together to provide value-added solutions to clients. Facilitated by the Arctic Economic Council, this agreement is founded upon a shared vision of collaboration that leverages the organizations’ complementary strengths and conveys a commitment to sustainable development in Arctic regions and around the world.

“Since its start, ASRC has been guided by Iñupiaq values in actively managing its businesses, lands, resources and business relationships,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., ASRC president and CEO. “We are delighted to have found a collaboration partner whose core values and commitment to sustainability resonate so closely with our own. We look forward to working together with Ramboll Environ.”

“Arctic is experiencing unprecedented interest from international companies looking to extract minerals, gems and oil, which is fueling the economic and social development of countries straddling the region,” said Frank Marrazza, President of Ramboll Environ’s Americas Division. “Our agreement with ASRC is an exciting enhancement to Ramboll’s longstanding experience in the Arctic and reflects the firm’s commitment to delivering environmentally and socially responsible outcomes that create enduring benefits for our clients and Arctic communities.”
