In a world of ever increasing environmental regulation, the impact of environmental issues has fast become a proactively managed boardroom issue.
Today, Environmental Due Diligence (EDD) is an increasingly important part of the mergers and acquisition process. While there is a clear downside in neglecting to consider environmental risks, there is also the possibility that, on occasion, environmental liabilities may have been over-stated by previously conducted studies. This may result in valuable investment opportunities being missed. A careful examination of the assumptions underlying existing environmental liability estimates can therefore yield beneficial results.
As an organisation whose primary focus is on assessing, mitigating and managing environmental risks, we understand the need to determine project risk prior to making investment decisions and are well placed to guide buyers, sellers, investors and lenders through the Environmental Due Diligence process.
From large scale onshore wind farms requiring technical due diligence, (such as energy yield, site and planning assessments and turbine specification), through to active sites requiring environmental due diligence, (such as noise, biodiversity, habitat impact and environmental compliance), our expert team has carried out environmental due diligence across a broad range of clients, during the development and operational stages.
Our fully qualified and multidisciplinary team of consultants consists of Planners, EIA Consultants, Noise Consultants, Energy and Environmental Auditors, Ecologists, Ornithologists, Hydrologists, Expert Witnesses and GIS specialists.
Together they provide impartial, timely, easy to understand and commercially pragmatic advice that enables an objective view to be taken on the suitability and value of the prospective site or portfolio purchase.
Our environmental due diligence services encompass all areas of our service provision, across all stages of the transaction cycle, from initial risk assessment and reporting in early transaction stages through to comprehensive reporting for final bid stage or financial close, and includes:
