WEB1214 - The Importance of Due Diligence Auditing in the transition to a Sustainable Economy

Due-diligence auditing can help identify and quantify environmental liabilities and to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the site, infrastructure and its operations. 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. We will then go into the process, challenges and environmental benefits of conducting due diligence audits with examples from the real world.

WEB1214 - EIA’s role in assessing Fracking proposals – UK experiences

The final EIA QMark webinar of 2014 is on the controversial topic of Fracking (or the exploration and extraction of unconventional hydrocarbons). The wide uptake of such development has the potential to aid the UK’s balance of payments, create jobs and enhance our fuel security. However, it also carries local / regional environment risks, often generates significant community concern and if widely applied has the potential to threaten the UK’s long-term carbon budgets and thus our contribution to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. As such, it is not surprising that the consenting of such developments is proving increasingly controversial and challenging.

As the key environmental assessment tool in the UK’s consenting process, EIA clearly has a key role to play. It falls to environment and sustainability professionals to step into this controversial area to identify the evidence of each development’s likely environmental effects and to go on to evaluate whether they are significant to aid decision-making.

This webinar will present the experiences of three of IEMA’s EIA Quality Mark registrants (Atkins, AECOM and Turley Associates).

Listen in to understand and learn how closely the issues faced are common to wider EIA practice and the unique challenges exist in this growing industry.
