ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDIES
Minimizing environmental impacts is a goal of every project but all projects face unique obstacles. Sustainable development is an ambitious process in which a community develops attitudes and ongoing actions that strengthen its natural environment, economy and social well-being. Benefits include more livable communities, lower costs and an environment safe for future generations.
From climate change and environmental justice considerations to an integrated assessment process at the start of every proposed project, the owner’s objectives are to achieve positive outcomes across ethical, health, environmental, economic and social dimensions. As strategic leaders, our goal is to provide our clients with the data to make informed decisions about the scope of their project as well as a clear understanding of the impact on the environment and population.
As a result of increased environmental awareness, public interest in sustainable development and environmental protection laws and regulations, projects often require environmental approvals prior to project start. Before the project launches our team assists with the due diligence, planning implementation, community engagement and outreach. Throughout the project phases we continue to monitor and report environmental impact studies findings, public sentiment, recommended project alternatives and enhancements.
