Efficient, responsible and safe use of space and water makes for a sustainable future. This is why Royal Haskoning takes an integrated approach to plans and projects in the areas of coastal, river and spatial development, water management and water treatment.
Population growth and economic development are putting great stress on the quality of life and the environment. Against this background we, together with our clients, develop solutions to address the concerns of all stakeholders in the best possible way. We see it as our mission to contribute in an active and innovative manner to a sustainable relation between man and the environment.
Environmental policy and risk management
Environmental policy and risk management are in these times of increasing public interest for the environment a much greater topic at companies and governments. Royal Haskoning has the knowledge and experiences to support and assist governments and companies in this area.
Do we understand and use the space around us to its full potential? When developing land, when building harbours or in rural areas? When dealing with soil related issues, air pollution or ecological changes? In other words: do we use Geographical Information Systems, spatial thinking and geographical information? We think there is a lot of progress to be made!
River and coastal management
We are continually in demand worldwide for projects involving coastal and river management and the enhancement of the environment. Efficient solutions for such issues require an appreciation that every project is unique. Our knowledge and experience acquired globally is applied at local level.
Spatial development and water management
The countryside is always in motion; nature development, water storage, stream restoration, ongoing urbanization, new recreation areas, wind turbines, national parks, fitting in infrastructure. This requires integrated planning, from the idea to the implementation. We provide the broad-based and specialized expert knowledge needed for this.
Water is high on the agenda. Worldwide. The debate on climate change and sustainability is generating worldwide interest in drinking water and sanitation. The callenges are huge: the water issues that we are facing are diverse and complex. These serious problems ask for innovative yet practical solutions, with an eye for the entire waterchain and water system. But also with an eye for sustainability: focusing on water and energy combined; and focusing on the economic and financial sustainability of water supply and sanitation.
