As pioneers in using technology to help stakeholders better understand the impact of engineering projects where stakeholder engagement and impact assessment is key, Royal HaskoningDHV is proud to have won an industry award for sustainability for its iReport tool.
The IEMA Sustainability Impact Awards are designed to celebrate people and businesses that are driving sustainability initiatives worldwide. Royal HaskoningDHV was presented with the Innovation in Impact Assessment for its iReport, a digital tool that presents information in a visual and dynamic way in order to lead to highly informed decision-making.
The innovative iReport cuts through project complexity and benefits a wide range of long and detailed written project reports, from initial project feasibility studies, masterplans, forecasting capacity studies to final project reports and evaluation. It uses photos, videos, interactive mapping and illustrations to represent information in a more digital, interactive, visual and accessible way.
Comments from the award’s judges included the following: “Royal HaskoningDHV’s collaboration with multiple stakeholders, including the Dutch National EIA Agency, ensured a robust and consistent approach has been developed that can withstand the scrutiny to which Environmental Statements are subject. Client testimonials indicate their acceptance of this new approach and the benefits of using a digital media platform to convey complex information in an easily digestible format.”
Paul Eijssen, strategic consultant for Impact Assessment at Royal HaskoningDHV, said: “Digital technology is constantly improving how we work, and this is a perfect example. Prior to the iReport, stakeholders for any major project would have to wade through hundreds of pages of text to get a sense of its opportunities and challenges. The iReport lets you navigate the information in your own way and uses a broad range of tools to drive faster and clearer understanding. We’re delighted that our innovative approach has been celebrated within the IEMA Awards.”
