Based on your business goals, strategy and operations, an environmental plan is needed to ensure that profits are being made in tandem with social and ecological conservation or regeneration. Being resource efficient should also be part of environmental management. Moreover, an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) is required in business operations and developmental projects.

The EMP should be prepared as a condition of approval or consent. The EMP is important as it is used as a reference point to ensure that a project’s actual environmental impacts are consistent with those evaluated in the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process. The EMP is therefore fundamental to the EIA process. The EMP should ensure that commitments given at a project’s planning and assessment stage are carried out accordingly in the construction and/or operation stage. Gaia Consult Global can assist you develop an EMP.
