Water and Environment 
Efficient, responsible and safe use of space and water within our vulnerable environment makes for a sustainable future. Royal Haskoning takes an integrated approach to plans and projects in the areas of coastal, river and spatial development, water management and water treatment.

It’s common knowledge that our relentless desire for advancement is taking its toll on our environment.  Addressing how we can reduce our impact on the planet is top of the agenda for most forward thinking governments today.  In our every day lives, there is increasing need for individuals and organisations to take responsibility for their carbon footprint.  As a world leader in industry, energy, transport and construction, environmental policy and risk management is at the heart of everything we do. Calling on the vast experience and expertise within our different disciplines, we help local governments and businesses assess the impact of proposed projects on the environment, society, health and safety.
