Nature-based design solutions are essential for sustainable management of natural systems and offer an opportunity to tackle socio-environmental challenges including climate change, water security and flood risk. The use of natural processes instead of traditional design and building methods, leads to greener, more sustainable and cost-effective solutions. Solutions in which society, ecology and economy all benefit.
At Royal HaskoningDHV we are global leaders in Nature Driven Design, having been involved in projects across the world for decades. Drawing on this experience, we are increasingly working with our maritime clients to embed nature driven design into port infrastructure and terminal planning projects. Our maritime environmental and operational specialists understand the challenges of operating sustainably and successfully within the often sensitive marine environments. By bringing together our expertise in environmental impact assessment and maritime design we can identify innovative solutions that deliver beneficial outcomes for our clients, biodiversity and the climate.
