Environmental and Nature Reviews

Taking the built environment and living nature into account as appropriate is nowadays a basic requirement for carrying out sustainable business operations. Climate change, overuse of natural resources and other mega trends require up-to-date, in-depth expertise.

Sweco helps its customers with environmental questions and other problems related to sustainable development, starting from the projects’ preliminary planning. Sweco has the necessary expertise for finding solutions that are sustainable to the environment and also fulfil the financial and technical demands during the different stages of project planning and implementation. Our services cover the preliminary reviews, technical planning, environmental impact assessment (EIA), acquiring the necessary permits, acquisitions and implementation.

From us, you can get competent service in any questions related to circular economy and bioeconomy. We make nutrient reviews, material reviews as well as waste and by-product assessments.

Our nature experts can compile nature reviews for all projects where land use changes or construction of new infrastructure are planned. We assess the key biotopes and make reviews concerning the area’s flora and fauna. We also compile the restoration plans, management plans of traditional biotopes and environmental protection plans for nature conservation areas and other areas valuable to biodiversity. Our competence includes also the Natura assessments and means tests defined in the Nature Conservation Act.
