Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a decision making tool geared at identifying, predicting and evaluating the environmental effects of proposed projects, developments and programmes taking into account the significant environmental consequences thereof. The study also identifies appropriate enhancement, mitigation and control measures, further from the decision to proceed.

Post Impact Assessment (PIA)/Environmental Evaluation Report (EER)

PIA/EER study is carried out post-commissioning of a project. It is carried out taking into account the recommendations of an EIA study to determine environmental conditions following an impact on the environment. As well as the study providing the extent of degradation, it also provides tools for decision-making with regards to remediation.

Environmental and Social Due Diligence (ESDD)

ESDD is the assessment of the environmental impacts of a project also taking into account its social implications. This study is carried out on projects to determine the level of financial sustainability of the project. Factors to be investigated and assessed during the study include the potential land contamination, health and safety regulations, climate change, sustainability and carbon footprint. Conducting ESDD on transactions is a critical component of a financial institution’s E&S Management System and its outcome should be factored into the decision-making process for proceeding with the transaction.

Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)

Environmental Site Assessment is a report prepared for a real estate holding that identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities. The analysis typically addresses both the underlying land as well as physical improvements to the property. The process is carried out in 3 phases.

General Desktop Studies

This service is carried out by drawing on literature reviews and field surveys as may be required. The study gathers and analyses existing data from public domain, scientific and commercial databases, and available project sources.

The feedback is designed to inform environmental surveys, permits and consents, EIA activities etc. The study identifies risks and opportunities at an early stage prior to the commitment of costly resources. Desktop studies are extremely effective tools that inform planning of any environmental project.
