Our environmental supervisors keep an eye on everything

We employ environmental lawyers as environmental supervisors for our construction projects. Even before work starts at a building site, these experts check that all environmental protections and laws have been observed. During construction, they communicate with the building companies and conservation authorities, and constantly monitor whether all environmental regulations are being complied with. If this is not the case, or if unexpected events occur, they devise professional solutions. 

Our colleagues receive special training, developed in conjunction with DB Training, for this work. We are proud of our environmental supervisors, since they are able to ensure that the habitats of protected animal and plant species are left largely undisturbed. And there is another benefit that they bring us. We are able to meet the Federal Railway Authority's planning requirements.
