Industrial activity generates goods and services necessary for community development. However, at the same time, it can also represent a threat to the surrounding environment. There is an increasing need, globally, for comprehensive solutions to diagnose and restore degraded areas to ensure optimal conditions – free of environmental risks – for any subsequent use of such areas.

Furthermore, with a presence in more than 70 countries around the world, we are ideally placed to support our clients in understanding and complying with legislative requirements – be these local, national or international – and we carry out our work according to strict certified-quality references.
Our large, multi-disciplinary team consists of specialist personnel who design comprehensive, turnkey projects perfectly adapted to the specific requirements of our customers.
Degraded-area restoration studies are aimed at any companies in the industrial and business sectors, public agencies, insurance companies and financial entities that require:
  • Technical assistance for legal requirements relating to contaminated soil
