Our actions

Gathering information…

We take measurements and conduct surveys on air quality, noise sources, the quality of green spaces and water, household waste, etc. We also keep an eye on the fauna and flora found in the Forêt de Soignes/Zoniënwoud on the south-eastern edge of Brussels and the many green spaces managed by Brussels Environment.

We are therefore able to provide the general public and decision-makers with appropriate information on the condition of the environment so as to enable them to understand and to act.

Planning actions…

We draw up action plans for the fight against air pollution, waste prevention and management plans, plans to combat urban noise, plans for the development of green spaces or the management of the Forêt de Soignes/Zoniënwoud, etc.

Taking action on the ground

On a day-to-day basis, our work on the ground involves laying out green spaces, ensuring that they are clean and safe for users, studying any consequences of a classified structure for the neighbourhood, following up complaints from individuals, monitoring compliance with environmental standards by businesses, etc.

Raising awareness, educating, advising…

We provide you with practical tips to help you better respect the environment. This involves awareness campaigns, exhibitions, events, brochures, actions with schools, this website, periodic magazines and newsletters, etc.

Working with companies …

Brussels Environment also partners businesses to enable them to develop economic activity in the Region while complying with their environmental obligations. We examine and manage the dossiers relating to environmental authorisations and permits, as well as monitoring and supervising the activities undertaken. At the same time, we conduct information actions and provide advice for businesses, as well as supporting their voluntary actions, in particular by awarding the “Ecodynamic business” label.
