Perioptias Environment Impact Assessment

Once a decision has been made, a business that seeks to be a good corporate citizen will assess the environmental impacts of that decision and various options.  In larger projects this is likely to be a legal requirement.  This is a challenging process because:

  • It is difficult to ensure all possible environmental impacts are considered.  Indeed, most environmental impact studies overlook relevant impacts.  Our Perioptias Environmental Impact Assessment tool identifies eight categories of impact, each with seven criteria.  Not only does this provide a more comprehensive checklist but can also stimulate thinking of other criteria that might be relevant.

  • The lack of a suitable scalar makes it very difficult to compare and assess these impacts as well as different options for moving forward.  We use a risk-based method to generate a scalar by which the environmental impacts of projects and their options can be compared.

More detail on this service is available from the Perioptias EIA presentation.
