Environmental & Social Management

Sus­tainab­le pro­ject rea­liz­a­ti­on has beco­me a key aspect for plan­ning and rea­li­zing lar­ge-sca­le infra­st­ruc­tu­re pro­jects. Laws, inter­na­tio­nal con­ven­ti­ons, bank stan­dards, and cor­po­ra­te princi­ples demand that the poten­ti­al nega­ti­ve impacts of a pro­ject are iden­ti­fied, addres­sed, and ade­qua­te­ly mitigated.

In order to ensu­re the envi­ron­men­tal and social com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty of a pro­ject, an Envi­ron­men­tal and Social Impact Assess­ment (ESIA) is under­ta­ken to eva­lua­te the poten­ti­al impacts of a plan­ned pro­ject on its phy­si­cal, bio­lo­gi­cal, and social envi­ron­ment. An ESIA also deve­lo­ps miti­ga­ti­on mea­su­res to avoid, redu­ce, or com­pen­sa­te for the­se impacts. This assess­ment is an inte­gral part of a pro­ject and pro­vi­des sup­port to decisi­on makers during pro­ject planning.

An appro­pria­te impact assess­ment assu­res com­pli­an­ce with legal and len­der requi­re­ments. It also leads to impro­ved cor­po­ra­te repu­ta­ti­on, com­pli­an­ce with cor­po­ra­te ethi­cal stan­dards, and more cost-effi­ci­ent pro­ject rea­liz­a­ti­on due to redu­ced non-tech­ni­cal risks. In this con­text, sta­ke­hol­der enga­ge­ment is inte­gral to achie­ving accep­ta­ble results for all invol­ved par­ties, ther­eby pro­mo­ting good cor­po­ra­te citizenship.
