VERBUND invests in environmental protection as well as ecological measures concerning electricity production and electricity transport. In order to safeguard the diversity of animals and plants, VERBUND collaborates with project partners, involves stakeholders and employs state-of-the-art technology. Fish bypasses and biotopes have improved many habitats along rivers and line routes. The expectation here is that biodiversity will increase significantly through these measures. Step by step, VERBUND is also equipping the existing hydropower plants with fish migration paths such as fish ladders or bypasses.
