Sustainable ground construction – an action plan in a changing climate
As part of the ongoing process of raising awareness in society of how ground construction can be adapted to a changing climate, we have produced an Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out a series of measures to adapt ground construction to a variable and changing climate, and specifies how they can be implemented.
The purpose of the action plan is to provide a basis for SGI’s work in addressing the challenges and preventing the risks that climate change entails to society, within SGI’s governmental mission. These goals are:
- Landslide risks are managed efficiently and sustainably.
- Shorelines along coasts, lakes and streams are used and managed sustainably.
- Society is sustainably planned and built considering a changing climate.
- The risks associated with contaminated areas are managed considering a changing climate.
