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.
Long term, sustainable urban development requires knowledge of nature’s values, knowledge of the ecosystem and the mindful management of natural resources. Sweco’s biologists create solutions aimed at preserving nature and biological diversity.
Sweco conducts numerous ecological inventories and studies. For major construction and infrastructure projects, we study how nature will be affected, and help preserve nature as a resource.
Our natural environment expert’s work on such tasks as analysing ecosystem services, taking inventory of specific natural values, inventories of land, freshwater and species, as well as studying disruption issues related to various infrastructure ventures. Sweco also has experts in species-protection law and we draft applications for exemptions and permits for species protection, as well as for protected areas. Our biologists propose compensation measures and develop oversight programmes. Sweco’s wide range of expertise enables us to always assemble a team comprising the appropriate specialists.
