ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
An environmental impact assessment is the cornerstone of an environmental impact assessment procedure. The kinds of projects that are subject to an EIA are determined on the basis of the EIA Directive (Directive 85/337/EEC). As part of the EIA provision, and upon agreement with the client, we provide all required analyses, measurements, inventories or expert opinions that are required to issue and environmental approval.

STRATEGIC ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS
A strategic environmental assessment has to be submitted during the comprehensive impact assessment procedure for the assessment of plans, programmes, master plans and spatial and other regulations. The procedure is subject to the decision of the ministry competent for the environment on the basis of the SEA Directive (Directive 2001/42/EC).
