Goal 15 Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss.
Fugro is actively involved in minimising the impact on terrestrial ecosystems and land degradation through flooding, through sustainable levee designs as well as our water management consultancy.
The need for sustainable management of forests and combatting desertification and halting biodiversity loss requires urgent attention to help minimise further global warming.
In 2021, Fugro has undertaken an impact assessment of its activities and resulting potential effects on biodiversity. These learnings are now used to develop further mitigating measures.
Fugro is actively engaging with its stakeholders by raising awareness among employees, clients, contractors and suppliers on this topic. Fugro contributed to the International Marine Contractor Association (IMCA) Recommended Code of Practice on Environmental Sustainability, which addresses marine biodiversity.
