Environment

Our environment is under pressure from various directions. Emissions of pollutants, noise and light, the consumption of natural resources and the intensified land use affect the living environment of people and the habitat of animals and plants. Climate change generates additional additional impact. Measures to protect our environment and resources must be based on solid foundations and implemented efficiently in order to be effective. Likewise, an early involvement of stakeholders ensures a high level of acceptance and targeted implementation. With our interdisciplinary teams, we can cover a wide range of environmental topics and support our clients effectively.

We support public institutions and private actors in a thematically broad spectrum. The design of legal frameworks, the development of topic-specific strategies, the implementation of stakeholder analyses, the setting up of inventories, controlling, as well as impact, cost and secondary benefit assessments of measures are focal points of our activities.

Cantons, cities and municipalities have to protect the population and the environment from air pollutants and harmful radiation. With our work on the effects as well as the recording and quantification of emission sources, we provide the foundations for effective environmental, climate and health protection. Acting as a bridge between technology, environment and society, we support decision-makers in the development of threshold values, action plans, pilot projects and individual measures as well as evaluations.

Die Kosten der Luftverschmutzung 2005 und 2015

Der Kanton Zürich gehört zu den am stärksten mit Luftschadstoffen belasteten Gebieten in der Schweiz. Die Schätzung der Schadenskosten bildet zusätzlich zur Belastungsmessung einen Indikator für den weiteren Handlungsbedarf.

The protection of natural resources requires the closing of material cycles. We develop principles, strategies and action plans for waste management, the sustainable use of recyclable materials and the promotion of the circular economy. Incentives, regulations and voluntary measures by the economy should complement each other in a meaningful way.
