Environmental Act

Establish environmental plans and visions, make integrated considerations based on data and realistic computing models and get people to participate.

The Environmental Act will come into force in 2021. 26 existing laws on items such as building, the environment, water, spatial planning and nature will be joined into one procedure through this Act. This will save time and money and should make it easier for private persons, companies and local authorities to initiate, review and start projects.

The Tygron Platform makes it possible, in anticipation, to work according to the spirit of the Environmental Act in an easy and fun way. As the Platform works with updated public data and calculates based on verified computing models, the sessions cannot only be used for training, but can also be actually put to practice.  

Whether it’s about the generation of energy by residents, the expansion of a business site or the construction of a new road, all stakeholders in this type of projects will have immediate feedback to their plans when using the Tygron Platform. Such plans are computed with the speed of lightning and the results are immediately shown on an organized 3D map. This gives stakeholders the information they need for a discussion about the merits of the matter and come to a decision that is widely supported. Exactly what the Environmental Act is all about.

This is how the Tygron Geodesign Platform is used for the Environmental Act

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte

“When initiatives are reviewed in the physical surroundings, working in a 3D environment is an inseparable method for a careful consideration of the interests of all the parties involved and for reviewing the initiatives against the standards, directives and ambitions of an area. Rho advisors are using the Tygron Platform to achieve this.”

“For the application of the Environmental Quality Profiles, the use of a 3D model provides the various stakeholders with more clarity of the impact from the decisions made than a 2D card. Reliable and detailed 3D information is also required for detailed reviews of for example sound pollution, air quality and flooding in order to provide proper calculations for these spatial issues.”

“The province of Utrecht is working on a new Environmental Vision. The province works together with Tauw on the utilization of the interactive Tygron Platform tool, which provides a fast and transparent view of the effects of the physical surroundings. This simplifies the process to come to a proper Environmental Vision and environmental impact report (MER).”
