Valued and preserved eco-systems
Nature provides people with many services
To better integrate these services into development projects, Egis established AULNES, a tool for mapping the services provided by our ecosystems, assessing the losses (economic, environmental and even societal value), evaluating the AMC approach (Avoid, Mitigate, Compensate) and incorporating the loss of ‘Natural Capital’ into the socio-economic assessment of projects.
> Assessment of the value of biodiversity and the services provided by nature
> Assessment and analysis of the loss of services
> Optimisation of the project, in order to maintain biodiversity and the associated ecological functions
Bats are seeing their survival constantly threatened...
...by human projects (infrastructure, wind farms, etc.). In order to help their preservation, Egis has developedan innovative tool, Bat3Data, which allows bat species to be identified, and their trajectories monitored andstored in 3D. The tool has been successfully tested on the A406 motorway (south of Macon) and the A65, connecting Langon to Pau. It received the ‘Entreprises pour l’Environnement’ 2014 prize in the category ‘Business and Biodiversity’.
