Environment

The balance between the environment and nature on the one hand and the need for development and growth on the other is a challenge, but also gives opportunities.

NIRAS’ approach recognises that people, livelihoods and ecosystems, must all be taken into consideration for a successful management of natural resources and the environment.

We advocate a holistic approach that seeks to maximize synergies between economic, social and environmental objectives.

Together with the key stakeholders we analyse the often complex situations with dedication. We emphasize socially acceptable solutions and analysis of opportunities and alternatives.

This approach has earned NIRAS a reputation for delivering cost-efficient environmental advisory services of the highest quality that adhere to an agreed framework and criteria for public and private clients.
