Ecological assessments and environmental impact assessments (EIA)

Urban development generates a continuous need for the construction and refurbishment of residential areas, infrastructure, industries and a host of other services. This often requires permits from the authorities, and often a study of how the environment will be affected in the form of an environmental impact assessment.

The Swedish Environmental Code stipulates that companies must study any environment effects when it is possible that their operations will have a significant impact on the environment. This often takes the shape of an environmental impact assessment. An EIA comprises both the document that is used for decision-making by authorities, as well as the actual study that yields the results in that document.

Sweco possesses solid EIA expertise in several fields, including road and railway expansion, industry, waterworks, municipal planning, wind power, powerline expansion and many other services. Backed by extensive expertise in the environmental area and several technical fields, we are well equipped to handle the complex investigative processes that an environmental impact assessment entails, as well as the documentary investigations that are often required.
