It is inevitable that modern cities impact on the environment, although the way in which they affect their surroundings can be minimised. Sweco's environmental specialists are engaged in predicting the importance of climate change for the natural environment and society. We propose measures which can reduce the environmental burden and help society to adapt to changing climatic conditions. The sooner we focus on the environmental aspects of a project, the more we can influence them.
The conservation of natural diversity is integral to our existence, quality of life and welfare. The identification of biological diversity is a particularly important field of assessment. Sweco conducts environmental impact assessments of all types.
Sweco's experts identify biological diversity on land, in water and at sea. We identify types of nature, red-listed species and foreign species. We identify aquatic environments and draw up measures and management plans for species and nature types in order to combat blacklisted species.
We have delivered extensive assessments of aquatic and terrestrial environments, including the identification and development of plans for watercourses, identifying natural diversity and outdoor life values in the countryside around Oslo, management plans and subject bases for species and nature types, and management plans for conservation areas.
Our environmental consultants understand the natural conditions existing throughout Norway, having gained extensive experience from research, teaching and official management of biological diversity over many years.
