Environmental permitting

Overview

Our team has valuable experience managing the environmental permitting of multi-million dollar international projects operating across various sectors. These include mining, oil and gas, energy and construction, many within challenging contexts and in locations where competitors hesitate to go. We provide essential guidance at all project phases in undertaking Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) and associated planning documentation in compliance with national environmental permitting regulations, key international standards such as the IFC Performance Standards, and international frameworks such as the Equator Principles.
