Environmental Studies and Assessments

The concepts of economic growth and environmental protection have long been thought of as mutually exclusive, but that thinking has changed. Whether it’s operating a mine, building a power grid or setting up a plant, the future of any project now depends on a rigorous assessment of the environmental issues consistent with current regulations. Today, achieving socially acceptable and economically viable projects while reducing their environmental footprint is a common challenge for all industrial businesses.

  1. Your challenges
    • Environment - River and forest

      Prepare a solid plan. Make informed decisions

      When acquiring a site, every socio-environmental challenge, risk and constraint that could potentially affect future project development must be identified. Performing a due diligence process and rigorous field analyses will provide you with reliable and comprehensive data to help you make informed decisions and focus your efforts on projects with the greatest potential.

      Optimize the technical and economic feasibility of your project

      Before investing time and resources into your project, you need all the data that will affect its success. So, it’s important to study and characterize your project’s environment from the start.

      In fact, an initial analysis of all activities related to project construction, operation and decommissioning will optimize its technical and economic feasibility. This will also make it easier for you to go through the social licensing steps and obtain the approvals and permits required to start your project.
