Sustainability consulting and environmental services

AFRY’s strategic sustainability consulting and environmental services

The transition to a more sustainable future is complex and different stakeholders face both risks and opportunities.

The increasing need for sustainable business operations in all industries has been caused by manifold developments, from resource scarcity, climate change and biodiversity loss, to regulatory and stakeholder demand.

This requires holistic thinking and innovative solutions. We support our clients in developing both sustainability strategies and technical solutions on the path to achieving their sustainability goals.
