Normandeau is a national leader in providing science-based environmental consulting services, research, and technological innovation across a biological spectrum. Founded in 1970, we are recognized for our broad experience, scientific excellence, and quality client service.
Normandeau is committed to environmental stewardship in our business practices. We have lowered our consumption footprint by increasing energy efficiency in buildings, purchasing cleaner-running engines for our vessels, implementing reuse and recycling programs, using products made from recycled materials, and reducing our waste stream. Our Sustainability Committee is charged with reviewing and recommending actions that will make our buildings and operations more energy efficient and continue our efforts to operate in a sustainable manner.
Normandeau is committed to supporting community engagement and volunteerism. More than 75% of staff volunteer outside of work, and many sit on boards or committees at the municipal, state, regional, and national levels. Our staff participates in the United Way Day of Caring, collects and donates clothing and food during our annual Holiday Drives, and helps to restore the oyster population in Great Bay, NH in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy.
