Measure the environmental and social impact of your development plans with impact assessments from SGS.
When planning and developing new business operations, it is important you consider the impact they will have on the environment and local communities. The first task of an impact assessment is to determine the baseline situation of the environment prior to any new activity. This is then used to evaluate how the project will affect the baseline, to help you efficiently introduce mitigation measures.
SGS impact assessment services
To help you determine the impacts of your business activities, we offer in some geographical locations:
- Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)
- Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) – which includes the impact on local communities
Impact assessments may also include Dispersion Modelling, to give you a complete picture of the potential impact of your project.
Following assessment, our specialists will provide guidance on how to comply with relevant environmental regulations and reduce your impact on the environment and local communities.
