Environmental Risk / Impact Assessment
What is it and why is it required?
An environmental assessment identifies the potential and actual impacts that a property or site can have on the environment and assesses how they are currently being controlled. It identifies current control measures and also areas where further action is required. Assessing environmental performance forms a key part of an Environmental Management System and can identify any legislation non-compliance. Organisations have an obligation to understand the environmental impact that their activities can have on the local and wider environment and how they need to be controlled.
What are the benefits?
Environmental assessments identify areas where a building is non-compliant with current legislation or environmental standards. It can also be used to identify efficiency gains and, therefore, reduce costs. Assessing a building or site’s environmental impact can also play a key role in gaining accreditations for Environmental Management Systems, such as ISO 14001.
How can the S2 Partnership help?
One of our highly-experienced environmental consultants will identify and assess environmental aspects and impacts, such as energy consumption, water consumption, waste, transportation, pollution, supply chain, statutory nuisance, fauna and flora.
The environmental assessment report subsequently produced will identify prioritised areas for improvement and potential efficiency gains.
