Carbon Reduction Plan

We understand resilience as seeking multifunctionality and co-benefits to society, robustness in data analysis, future-proofing for known challenges and seeking awareness for unknown challenges. We bring an impressive portfolio of expertise including nature-based solutions, neighbourhood-level energy souvereignty, air pollution implementation plans, socio-economic analysis as well as specialist skills in integrating population scale cycling into transport practice (network design, junctions, signalling, maintenance & operations and most importantly safety).

The Dutch approach means putting sustainable design principles into daily working practice:

  • Nature-inclusive and climate-proof design
  • Integration: applying the chain approach
  • Optimisation of functions
  • Social design, based on social sustainability
  • Participation by stakeholders and users
  • Trias principle for sustainable solutions.
