Ecological Assessments and Environmental Impact Assessments

Urban development generates a continuous need for the construction and refurbishment of residential areas, infrastructure and industries. This often requires permits from the authorities, and often a study of how the environment will be affected.

“Act on environmental assessment of plans and programmes” stipulates that companies must study any environmental effects when their operations can have a significant impact on the environment. This often takes the shape of an environmental impact assessment (EIA). An EIA comprises both the document that is used for decision-making by authorities, as well as the actual study, that yields the results in that document.

Sweco possesses solid EIA expertise in several fields. Backed by extensive expertise in the environmental area and several technical fields, we are well equipped to handle the complex investigative processes that an environmental impact assessment entails, as well as the documentary investigations that are often required.

Sweco can assist in:

  • All phases of the planning process for both the client and the planning and environmental authority
  • Technical expertise related to the environmental themes to be assessed in an EIA or ecological assessment
  • Preparing EIAs for projects involving manufacturing facilities, all types of infrastructure facilities, nature restoration, coastal protection, urban development projects, energy systems, shooting ranges, motor sports facilities, recreation  and shopping centres
