Resource projects today can face a number of challenges from regulatory bodies, communities, and stakeholder groups. If not appropriately overcome, these can manifest as construction delays, operational constraints, or other project setbacks.
We work with our clients to reduce project risks and integrate project design to enhance acceptability to regulators, communities, and lenders. Knight Piésold maintains the technical capabilities to undertake full environmental baseline studies, environmental management plans, environmental and social impact assessments, social studies and community engagement, and permitting for all types of resource development. These studies are integrated to the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) standards of the projects we serve.
We use a multidisciplinary approach with teams drawn from the company's technical staff supported by experts in specific fields and geographic locations, to undertake detailed studies of impacts of new projects throughout the world.
