dc.description.abstractThis article is a study of how environmental concerns are enacted and dealt with by consulting engineering companies in Norway. Consulting engineering companies play a key role in the ongoing shaping and reshaping of the physical qualities of nature and culture, of landscapes, and the built environment. To what extent do they take on such responsibilities and what makes them engage with environmental issues? What does it mean to do environmental concern? The far most important way of doing environmental concern was to fulfill legal regulations and framework. This compliance with legal rules was not as much about professional ethics as it was a translation into business opportunities. Such a re-assemblage of environmental concerns among consultant engineer companies may be called the legal compliance as business. Thus, legal codes and regulations seem to be the most effective instruments to shape environmental practices of consulting engineers.nb_NO
