Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

The goal of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study is to perform an environmental and social assessment of a project area identifying and assessing the impacts that could occur as a result of the construction, operation and closure activities of certain mining, energy or oil & gas project.

EIAs determine the actual area affected by the project proposing at the same time environmental management strategies to prevent, mitigate or compensate potential negative impacts while developing a project. The purpose of an EIA is also to improve the benefits of the project to ensure compatible operation align with good environmental management practices, standards, environmental and social policies.
