As a result, industrial engineers face some difficult dilemmas. How do we plan production that is sensitive to nature, climate and society? And how do we produce more with less?

Industrial environment services

Ramboll is one of the world’s leading consultancies. We offer all types of industrial environmental  services including spatial planning, legal services, risk assessment, product assessment, life cycle assessment (LCA), auditing, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability. We provide industrial environment services at a national, regional and local levels.

Spatial planning

Spatial planning and appropriate environmental assessments are often a prerequisite to new industrial projects. At Ramboll, we are used to combining spatial planning, environmental impact assessment (EIA) and strategic environmental assessment (SEA).

We assist our customers with overall project management, including making assessments of the various environmental issues that might arise. We prepare relevant planning documents and negotiate with local and government authorities. We help local authorities prepare planning material, and we act as a sounding board in complicated planning cases.

Legal services

Ramboll also provides services to companies and authorities on legal requirements to make sure they comply with environmental legislation. We prepare environmental approvals, carry out environmental inspections, and prepare local environmental plans.

Product assessment

We have the expertise to prepare product assessments according to customers’ specific needs. For example, we compare how different products contribute to global warming, pose potential health risks or contribute to other potential environmental impacts.
