Sustainability Risk Assessment
A robust risk assessment from SGS will help you to minimise your environmental impact and enhance your business reputation and operational efficiency.
Environmental risk management is an essential part of your project planning. It can save you time and money by establishing efficiencies in your processes and can mean the difference between project success and failure. Our environmental risk assessment identifies potential future hazards and challenges to decrease your adverse impact on the health of users of your site and on your local environment. By examining scenarios and anticipating future challenges, our risk assessment will ensure you have integrated and budgeted for all possibilities for the future of your site. It also helps you to deal immediately with existing problems such as sources of pollution, thereby avoiding expensive remediation at a later stage.
The framework of our risk assessments considers human health, groundwater and surface water resources and local ecosystems. Biotops production brings many environmental benefits but also sustainability challenges as the introduction of new biofuel plantations could affect fragile ecosystems. By studying the areas that will be exposed to change, and using computer mapping, we can assess the potential impact.
A risk assessment will allow our experienced teams to consider any corrective action you need to take for the success of your project as well as to meet compliance with applicable regulations.
Groundwater and surface water resources around your site could be at risk of contamination, affecting the environment and your operational sustainability. We assess this by looking at the migration velocity of known pollutants. We use a range of software and groundwater modelling to display the risk areas so you can see the extent of any planning needed.
The conclusions of our assessment will determine any remediation or corrective action needed for your project success and to meet applicable regulatory needs. Contact our experienced team today for a bespoke action plan.
