Environmental monitoring

The aim of the Environmental Follow-up for a project or activity is to assure that the relevant environmental variables which gave rise to the Environmental Impact Study evolve according to that established in the documentation which forms part of the respective evaluation, specifically that set forth in the Environmental Impact Declaration.

Our services include the design, coordination and execution of Environmental Follow-ups and Environmental Monitoring Plans, completely adapted to the features of each project and covering all its phases in an integral way.

  • Selection of the relevant environmental variables which the follow-up must cover.
  • Assessment of the environmental components which will be object of measurement and control.
  • Location of the control points and the parameters which will be used to observe the evolution.
  • Evaluation of the quantitative levels or the permitted or committed levels.
  • Estimate of the duration and frequency of the follow-up plan for each parameter.
  • Establishment of the measurement method or procedure of each parameter.
  • Determination of the delivery period and frequency of the reports to the competent organisations.

Specific solutions are sought for the Protection from the Impact Conditions which affect the Flora, Fauna, Landscape, Archaeological Remains, Ethnographic Elements, Cultural Assets, etc., by the application of all types of preventive, protective, minimising, corrective or compensation measures which are developed in any of the project phases (preliminary, construction, functioning or dismantlement phase).
