The report Wholesome Air, Serene Cities – Reduced Noise and Air Pollution in Urban Areas addresses the relationship between the sources and levels of air and noise pollution in European cities. It provides recommendations that can make a perceptible difference to urban citizens and improve quality of life in urban areas.
Sweco UK has been recognised as a top ten civil engineering firm for the first time by New Civil Engineer (NCE) at its annual industry awards.
Climbing 40 places from last year’s NCE100 Companies listing, the business was placed sixth in the ranking of the top UK 100 engineering firms, with the judges commending Sweco for its commitment in pushing the boundaries of sustainability and holistic design.
Sweco also scooped the ‘Low Carbon Leader’ award at the London ceremony, following its work on implementing PAS2080 carbon standards across Renfrewshire Council’s £130 million City Deal infrastructure project. The judges also applauded the company for its ‘Carbon Conversations’ programme, which aims to improve carbon literacy across the industry and teach participants to create action plans to reduce emissions in their own specialisms.
