Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco’s water and environmental specialists work with reducing harmful emissions, recycling waste and ensuring access to clean water. We also offer solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate.
Water is one of the earth’s most vital natural resources and we rely on it being clean and free of hazardous elements. Treating water carefully is a crucial component of a sustainable society. Sweco’s experts help conserve and consume the world’s water in the smartest way possible, to ensure that the supply lasts.
Every year, Sweco conducts numerous studies and investigations to protect our surface and ground water. For construction and infrastructure projects, we study how water conditions are affected and conduct environmental impact assessments (EIAs), as well as developing water-supply plans. Our experts are also highly knowledgeable concerning the EU water framework directive.
We work with computer simulation and geographic information systems (GIS) to gain a visualisation of how water behaves in different circumstances, which gives our clients a sharper and broader perspective to base their decisions on, and an opportunity to implement cost-effective measures based on each particular situation.
