Our experience spans a diverse range of sectors, such as commercial and residential development, oil and gas, power, transport, infrastructure, mining and waste.

Our in-house multidisciplinary team of professionals – including leading UK and international environmental, social and health impact assessment and planning practitioners – allows us to provide scientific technical services and commercially driven project management support.

In the UK, Ramboll Environment & Health has a proven track record in delivering robust Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and preparing Environmental Statements to secure development consent with minimal post submission clarification requests, attesting to the thoroughness and quality of our work. We have extensive experience supporting on detailed, outline, hybrid and reserved matters applications, and amendments to applications including Section 96a and Section 73 applications.

On international projects, we combine our experience of global standards, such as the Equator Principles, International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Performance Requirements and other International Financial Institution (IFI) requirements such as the OECD Common Approaches, with a thorough understanding of local regulatory requirements. Whether working on behalf of international financial institutions or project developers, we help define and manage reputational risks, and identify and manage environmental and social challenges.

Technical areas of expertise
Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment
ENVIRON was a founding member of the Institute of Environmental Assessment (now the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment – IEMA) in 1999. Following on from this, Ramboll is a Registered EIA Practice, conferred by biennial independent review of our EIA work against best practice between 1993 and April 2011 when IEMA launched its EIA Quality Mark scheme. All of our EIA activities are independently reviewed by IEMA and as an EIA Quality Mark registrant we have an on-going commitment to excellence in delivering and promoting best practice.
