Kennedy Jenks Consultants, Inc. (Kennedy Jenks) is a leading water, engineering, and environmental firm with over 100 years of experience and 34 offices nationwide, including Princeton NJ. Kennedy Jenks provides engineering and science-based solutions for private and public clients by creating tailored and sustainable solutions.

The sustainable use of assets is a cornerstone of low-impact design. Built asset management often focuses on optimizing the consumption of natural resource assets (e.g., reduced energy demands of a LEED-certified building). Kennedy Jenks’ natural resource management scientists extend these principles from our built infrastructure to the natural world around it, achieving a net positive environmental benefit. Kennedy Jenks applies asset management and value creation tenets to managing natural resource assets, making big impacts with subtle changes and small investments. Whether it’s a one-time construction project or a programmatic approach to delivering on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) metrics, the efficient management of natural resource assets yields measurable benefits.

Wildlife Habitat Council represents the only voluntary sustainability standard designed for broad-based biodiversity enhancement and conservation education activities on corporate landholdings. For nearly two decades, Lora Sterner and Emily Lynch have been creating and managing Wildlife Habitat Council programs to achieve our corporate clients’ goals, delivering multiple Gold and Silver Certified programs.  With increased visibility related to sustainability and ESG, our team shares your focus on responsible resource use. Kennedy Jenks’ wildlife and natural resource management expertise compliments investments made on water/energy consumption and waste minimization – creating net environmental benefits and a holistic approach to managing and messaging your environmental footprint. In partnering with our clients, we value our role in supporting their commitment to comprehensive and responsible resource management and creating leaders in sustainability that stand apart in their industry.
