Landscape architecture is qualified to make an important contribution in the struggle against climate change. We contribute to achieving climate targets with open spaces that are energy-efficient and have a climatically balanced effect.
Global climate change is one of the biggest challenges of our time. Landscape architecture is predestined to make a significant contribution to meeting climate targets. As an enterprise, it is our responsibility to optimize the energy footprint of our actions. In addition, open spaces also directly improve the urban climate by supporting, for example, the circulation of air and the creation of cold air. We promote the development of sustainable urban and landscape spaces with a holistic approach, in which trees, landscape architecture’s most important design element, are given a very new significance.
Cold air corridors and easily accessible, high-quality green spaces contribute significantly to a pleasant settlement climate. For the Werdenberg-Liechtenstein agglomeration, we are developing principles, fields of action and measures for heat-adapted settlement development.
We compensate the emissions of our business activities completely via worldwide climate protection projects. We are supported in the calculation, reduction and compensation of CO2 emissions by ClimatePartner. The entire process is traceable through the label 'climate neutral' and our certificate.
Open spaces play a crucial roll in adapting settlement areas to the climate. For the Obersee agglomeration area, which consists of seventeen municipalities in three cantons, we are developing the basis and recommendations for action for promoting a temperate climate in settlement areas.
