Environmental & Social Management


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.
