Geokalkyl for Infrastructure Projects

Data-driven infrastructure design for lower climate impact

CO2 will be the single most important driving factor going forward.

There is a great need in different infrastructure projects to be able to easily compare the costs and climate impacts of different solutions, both in the early stages and in the course of the project.

EU Taxonomy serves as guidance

In order to reach our climate goals, investments need to be directed more towards sustainable projects and activities. The European Commission’s Taxonomy Regulation, launched in 2021, clearly sets the way forward here. The Regulation defines what an environmental investment is, with six fundamental environmental objectives, two of which, climate change mitigation and adaptation, serve as guidance for infrastructure projects.

New opportunities with digitalisation

In parallel, the digitalisation of the infrastructure sector is also driving development and creating completely new opportunities for achieving climate objectives.

Joint storage of data

At AFRY, we collect data from a variety of relevant sources for joint storage using digital technologies. Data that is then visualised intuitively and thus more easily interpreted by the user, both in the early stages and also in the course of the project.

Costs, climate impact and mass management

Joint storage of data creates new conditions for insights into costs and climate impact, and allows us, together with our clients, to compare different solutions, plan for mass management and make wise decisions.

In addition, there are great advantages in having all the data gathered in one place during the project in a society where information security is now becoming increasingly important.

Game graphics boost Geokalkyl

Central to this service is Geokalkyl, a GIS tool from the Swedish Transport Administration, which calculates costs and climate impact in infrastructure projects. By adding additional data sources through advanced game graphics (Unreal Engine), we have created a powerful tool that, in a completely new and more intuitive way, supports and speeds up the decision-making process in the projects.

Created through collaboration

The Geokalkyl for Infrastructure Projects service is a result of collaboration between AFRY and the Swedish Transport Administration and part of AFRY’s work to drive the transition towards a sustainable society.
