EIA Climate Assessment

We expertly assess and minimise the impact of our projects on the global climate, while ensuring their resilience to projected climate change.

European Union Directive 2014/52/EU, requires climate change to be addressed within the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process.

Through our proactive implementation of directive requirements and contributions to associated industry guidance, Sweco continue to be at the forefront of this field. We address climate change mitigation and adaptation at the earliest stages of a project, which enables potentially significant effects to be mitigated. 

From large-scale transportation schemes to energy from waste facilities, our award-winning Carbon & Sustainability Team has leading experience in conducting EIA climate assessments for a broad range of projects.
