Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

RPS has unrivalled experience in Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), having worked on major projects throughout the UK and abroad. Amongst our staff we have some of the most able and experienced environmental consultants practising in the UK and we are one of the few organisations that can provide all of the technical experts required for the EIA process.

Our approach to EIA has been shaped by many years of preparing technically and legally robust Environmental Statements; always adopting best practice techniques and prepared to the highest standard, minimising the risk of challenge or delay. We have particular experience in assisting clients with site selection and EIA for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects.

RPS was a founder member of IEMA and joined the IEMA Quality Mark scheme at its inception and the recent annual review by IEMA has confirmed our ongoing high standards of practice.
