Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
An EIA (environmental impact assessment) is an analysis that looks into the consequences infrastructure and investment projects will have on their natural surroundings.
EIAs are carried out in conjunction with construction of motorways, railroads, ports, airports, pipelines and high voltage transmission wires, as well as general construction, manufacturing, sewage treatment plants, transfer stations and parking facilities.
Environmental analysis of plans and programmes is carried out for a number of industries and sets the guidelines for construction of future infrastructure. An environmental analysis can also be made of planned construction that could affect nature preserves.
Environmental analysis of infrastructure projects, plans and programmes is carried out together with project owners, public agencies and the general public.
With staff specialising in environment, transport, law, communication and public hearing, COWI can offer consultancy throughout the entire environmental analysis process, either as a comprehensive or specialised service.
In Africa, COWI is for example involved in EIAs and social impact assessments for large dams in Mozambique and for a 530 kilometre natural gas pipeline running from Tanzania to Kenya.
