Sustainable ground construction – an action plan in a changing climate

As part of the ongoing process of raising awareness in society of how ground construction can be adapted to a changing climate, we have produced an Action Plan. The Action Plan sets out a series of measures to adapt ground construction to a variable and changing climate, and specifies how they can be implemented and by whom.
