Environmental consulting belongs to those human activities which has been significantly growing in importance in the last few decades. This field encompasses wide range of activities useful mainly for operators of industrial facilities but also for other entities whose activities are related to the natural environment. This activities include planning, process of construction, operation of the facility, control of the operation and facility removal.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA)
EIA is basically a process of assessing potential impacts of prepared projects and finding appropriate measures to reduce their negative impacts on the environment. As for projects that have to be assessed according to the Act No. 100/2001 Sb. about the environmental impact assessment, a zoning permit cannot be granted without the assessment in the EIA process. Our company provides notification, documentation and assessment according to the Act No. 100/2001 Sb. for investors whose plans belong to this category.
INTEGRATED POLLUTION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (IPPC)
The Act No. 76/2002 Sb. deals with the IPPC and orders operators of certain facilities to obtain an integrated permit. Our company can help you in processing of an application for the integrated permit, we can give you advice while processing it on your own, or elaborate only a part of it. We can assist you in negotiations for issue of the permit (e.g. representing the client in negotiations about the application and during the operator’s reaction on expert’s opinion) and help you compare operational parameters with the best available techniques (BAT), etc
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The EMS is the part of an overall corporation management system which works with company’s structure, actions, responsibilities, practices, methods, processes and sources to formulate, implement and revise its environmental policy. G-Consult helps operators to introduce the EMS according to the ISO 14 001 standards with the aim to ensure continuous decrease of negative influence on the natural environment.
As for the environmental audits we offer assessment of facilities with respect to regulatory compliance in the following areas: environment protection, impact on the environment by complementary activities, assessment of the EMS and the QMS, control and monitoring of the operation, keeping a record of environmental information, previous environmental burden, noise, etc. As a part of the audit we can also provide complementary monitoring.
Environmental outsourcing means hiring an external provider of services related to the natural environment. It is a collaboration with an external organization which takes responsibility for certain compliance activities not related directly to the main business activity of an organization. Your company can concentrate on its primary activities while a paid external provider takes away a burden of regulatory compliance. G-Consult offers environmental outsourcing services in the following areas: waste treatment, water monitoring, remediation of environmental damage, preparation of investments, etc.
