Environment and Permitting
Understanding and protecting the environment is a fundamental responsibility of our business. Knight Piésold maintains the technical capabilities to undertake full environmental baseline studies, environmental and socio-economic impact assessments, permitting and construction monitoring for all types of resource development.
We use a multi-disciplinary approach with teams drawn from the Company's technical staff supported by experts in specific fields and geographic locations, and have undertaken detailed studies of impacts of new projects throughout the world, predominantly in the mining, hydropower and water resource sectors. These have included a number of projects in environmentally sensitive areas requiring special attention to local community values and rare species of flora and fauna.
