Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIAs)
The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) defines an environmental impact assessment as "the process of identifying, predicting, evaluating and mitigating the biophysical, social, and other relevant effects of development proposals prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made." Simply, impact assessment is the process of identifying the future consequences of a current or proposed action. The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that decision makers consider the environmental impacts when deciding whether or not to proceed with a project.

At ECS, our ESIA team is at the forefront of understanding both local and international (Equator Principles, International Finance Corporation) standards.

ECS assembles multi-disciplinary teams using engineers and scientists in:
Engineering – such as mining, chemical, mineral, geological, geomatic/geodetic, geotechnical and civil engineers.
Physical science - such as hydrology, water quality, noise and air quality.
Biological science – such as terrestrial and aquatic ecology, biodiversity and ecosystem services.
Social science – such as health, cultural sciences/archaeology and socio-economics.
Stakeholder engagement and social management strategies, policies and practices.
