We act as the central government competence centre in properties and environmental issues involving their use and in environmental construction.
Our services include environmental surveys, the study and remediation of contaminated environments, environmental engineering, circular economy solutions, environmental impact monitoring and regulatory procedures under environmental law.
Environmental and nature surveys
We carry out environmental and nature surveys, surface and groundwater surveys and health and environmental risk assessments relating to harmful substances.
We direct and coordinate survey and remediation projects on land and groundwater contamination. We carry out dozens of surveys and several soil and groundwater remediations each year. The need for remediation is usually triggered by withdrawal from the area, a change in use, environmental damage or regulatory requirement.
We carry out and direct the planning and construction of environmental engineering protective structures. These include the protection of soil and groundwater, noise attenuation solutions and water treatment structures.
Circular economy solutions
We act as an expert in issues related to the utilisation of building demolition materials and the treatment of masses containing harmful substances. We also address regulatory procedures relating to utilisation.
Environmental impact monitoring
We provide expert support or a comprehensive service for directing, developing and reporting environmental monitoring programmes. We direct the Finnish Defence Force’s environmental monitoring programmes and reporting centrally and we manage the environmental data geographic information system.
We manage the environmental regulatory procedures required for our operations and projects as well as the acquisition of the information and reports required for the procedures. At the same time, we ensure that the overall interests of the state are taken into account.
