Environmental impact assessments ensure that the environmental implications of projects are analyzed and understood prior to execution. These assessments provide project developers assurance that their projects are compliant with a variety of regulatory requirements. Environmental assessments offer guidance during the licensing and permitting phase of projects and ensure that the installation, operation and decommissioning of assets doesn’t have significant effects on the environment.
African Themes have years of experience working as advisors and project managers for our clients involved in industries across the marine sector. Our environmental consultants give practical and effective advice, impact assessments and reports on key environmental issues from license application, planning and development through operations and decommissioning.
