The Leaders in Energy and Preservation (LEAP) is a coalition of energy companies and historic preservation groups that are promoting best practices for early planning that deliver efficient energy projects through responsible heritage management. Alongside Commonwealth Heritage Group, Inc.’s president, Andy Weir, leaders include representatives from Shell, Hess Corp., Southwestern Energy, TransCanada, and the Society for American Archaeology, and others. The practice and technological innovations this group of leaders is coming up with is paving the way for “energy companies to manage risk and plan successful projects that protect significant heritage resources such as archaeological sites, historic properties, and sites of cultural importance to indigenous people.”
