SUSTAINABILITY AND CLIMATE ADAPTION

We have a responsibility to preserve and develop the environment. At Orbicon, sustainability is a priority that runs through all of our projects, and it is one of our core competencies. With more than 100 years of experience in the environmental area, we offer a wide range of services. Our method is holistic, and we approach projects with both a technical, creative, and value-adding perspective. Sustainability is important for our future, and therefore important for our business.

As the environment changes, the importance of climate adaption has become clear.

Mitigating the effects of climate change is a challenge for both companies and governments. Orbicon is a market leader in climate adaption, and we help you convert challenges into opportunities. We create solutions involving water management, buildings and roads, sustainable drainage systems, and the involvement of the public.

Sustainable Solutions

Within wastewater treatment, Orbicon develops environmentally and economically sustainable solutions, and we work with both suppliers and public authorities to ensure an optimal use of the valuable asset. We are e.g. the full-service consultant in constructing the first indoor wastewater treatment plant in Denmark, a plant that will also function as a recreational area, and which has already gained international attention. Orbicon has also constructed reed bed systems for sludge treatment for more than 25 years, since we quickly found out that reed beds provide a much more environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution compared to the traditional mechanical and chemical methods. And with the EU framework directive calling for cleaner discharges from our wastewater treatment facilities, treating the resulting increase in sludge in a sustainable way is getting even more important.

One of the challenges of climate change is handling the increase in heavy rains and flooding, but expanding sewage systems can quickly become a difficult and costly task. Sustainable drainage systems (SuDS), on the other hand, mimic nature, and are an eco-friendly, cost-effective solution - and something that Orbicon is a specialist in. Together with our clients, we create SuDS that are tailored to the local conditions, and that provide you with the most efficient and sustainable way of draining surface water. Simultaneously, we design SuDS to be a source of new, exciting possibilities, whether in a residential, rural, or industrial area.
