WEB1114 - What can UK EIA learn from International Practice

Marking three years of monthly EIA webinars, this QMark webinar looks beyond the UK to explore what practice can learn from good practice and approaches from Impact Assessment in the global market place.

The webinar will feature presentations from Quality Mark registrants that are actively involved in international EIA practice. It will explore differences in international practice, how challenges, such as a lack of baseline data, are overcome and how progress in good practice has been made. With the World Bank, IFC and Equator Principles regularly reviewing their core Environmental & Social Impact Assessment requirements and guidance, there is much the UK could learn from taking a view at wider practice.

The audit provides an understanding of a site’s contamination issues, helping stakeholders determine the liability for clean-up operations and the potential for legal civil damages that could occur.

This webinar starts with an introduction to Environmental Due Diligence Auditing from Mark Thompson, a Director in the PwC’s Sustainability & Climate Change team, who will provide an overview of how importance of due diligence audits, what investors look in due diligence audits and how sustainability is incorporated in them.
