Climate Action

The effects of the climate crisis are being felt daily by citizens around the world. Specific knowledge and data are needed to plan and build safe and resilient future urban environments. As climate change increasingly brings flood warnings and more extreme weather conditions, special measures to ready our urban environments and societies need to be taken.

Mitigating the dangers and adapting to the new challenges presented by our changing climate is the theme of Climate Action. By examining the environmental impact of the built environment, we show how to best mitigate the overall effect on our climate. From carbon costs, to the designing and building of structural and social resilience, to the links between biodiversity, climate and healthy cities, we see how to best calculate our decisions and plan for a climate considerate future.
Urban Insight is based on a number of insight reports written by Sweco's experts, based on data, fact and science. These insights will be shared throughout the year in a series on Urban Insight website. Global and local initiatives will be organised during the year to inspire, and to open up for discussions about sustainable urban planning. During 2020 within the theme Climate Action we will share more data, facts and insights about how we together create a sustainable future, starting today.
