In the development of major projects, it is important to consider greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through environmental impact assessment (EIA) during the consenting and planning process.

IEMA first published its EIA guide Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Evaluating their Significance in 2017 to coincide with the changes to the EIA regulations, with a greater emphasis on climate and GHGs. This guidance followed on from IEMA’s 2015 EIA guide Climate Change Resilience and Adaptation. In 2020 we updated and published a second edition of the latter, based on input from our expert members and stakeholders. We are now proud to announce the publication of the second edition of the former, updated based on insights from the past five years to take the current state of good practice into account. The new guidance will be accompanied by a launch webinar and is expected to be available from February.

Check iema.net/events to book onto the guidance launch webinar for the chance to hear from the guidance’s key authors.
