Ecoletta
sustainable solutions
since 1995

We help protect what we need:
a clean environment. So that the future is worthwhile for all of us.

About us

We examine soil, water, air and buildings for pollutants, and advise on the development of new sustainable products. For a future worth living for us all. 

History

Econetta emerged from Arcadis Switzerland and was founded in 1995 as independent BMG Engineering AG. We build on more than 25 years of commitment to sustainable environmental consulting.

Our future is linked to the values of this pioneering work:

Responsibility: Based on scientific quality, we find reliable and solution-oriented answers to complex cases. This is how we create trust.

Sustainability: Is the core of our attitude and a working principle in all projects. On a small scale as well as on a large scale: the effect of our actions counts.

Collaboration: Whether in a team, through our lived proximity to clients or in a network with authorities. Together we develop the better solutions.

Services

We combine science-based consulting and laboratory expertise with flexible, efficient and effective solutions. We maintain long-standing client relationships, partnerships and an established network with regulatory and local authorities.

Site Evaluation & Restoration

In renovation and construction projects or in property transactions: We assess the risk to the environment and people from pollutants, provide certainty in planning and support the implementation of measures.


Product Compliance & Sustainability

We develop strategies to comply with chemical legislation and improve sustainability in order to bring chemical products to market in compliance with the law and to use them responsibly.

Environmental Laboratory

We analyse building materials, water and solid samples for classical and emerging pollutants. Additional screening analyses can detect relevant pollutants and include them in monitoring campaigns, for example.

Environmental Toxicology

We conduct studies to clarify physico-chemical properties, as well as toxicological effects on our aquatic environment, and biodegradability. Whether for regulatory purposes, or for the development of active substances and products.

Projects

From contaminated site management and chemical risk assessment to support for sustainable product development: we create solutions that are worthwhile for everyone.
