Environmental impact assessment - EIA
Ramboll has many years of experience carrying out EIAs for onshore and offshore oil and gas supply facilities, road constructions, airports, ports, bridges, industries, and so on. We facilitate EIAs for various international, regional and local clients (international financial institutions, private companies and national authorities and directorates).
EIAs must often comply with legislation. They provide information on the following key topics:
In addition to carrying out the technical aspects of EIAs, we also offer to be responsible for maintaining the necessary contact with authorities and managing the authorisation process throughout the EIA procedure.
Ramboll is very experienced in preparing and participating in public information meetings to involve local citizens and other interested parties, such as NGOs. We believe that complaints and suggestions from the public can strengthen projects, since our experience has taught us that the best projects involve all interested parties.
Ramboll combines an interdisciplinary approach with a high level of professional expertise and we always work closely with our customers – from problem clarification to project completion – keeping costs to a minimum. We have extensive EIA experience from various sectors, often in projects that are both complex and large.
Each of Ramboll’s national EIA teams is highly experienced in working in partnership with experts on road construction, private and industrial construction, traffic, risk management and geophysics. These partners may be from within Ramboll, from different companies, or perhaps from developers’ own specialist groups.
Ramboll’s long experience working on international projects has eliminated the borders between national EIA teams. We often work across national boundaries, and always comply with the Espoo Convention on EIA.
To better understand the scope of environmental impacts and present alternatives to the public, Ramboll produces professional simulations, in 2D or 3D visualisations.
