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 management of global water resources and climate change are two of the greatest challenges facing us in the 21st century. Water is a precious resource in many places and fresh water ecosystems are becoming increasingly more vulnerable.
Sweco has global experience in sustainable water resources management and has cooperated with international institutions and universities which have been pioneering research in this field. We have conducted multidisciplinary water sector assignments, ranging from general vision, policy and strategy development, to assessing the consequences of water infrastructures.
Our experts are knowledgeable about water resources management, water consumption and balance, water supplies and purification, flow studies, pollution accounts and using GIS. They are highly experienced with respect to the EU's Water Directive, legislation, planning processes, cooperation methods and management. They can also assist with the management and planning of watercourses.
