Formulation of Environmental Impact Statements and Environmental Risk Studies.
At B+F we have over 15 years experience formulating and presenting MIAs; we know they are the starting point of any successful project. The Environmental Impact Statement (MIA) is an environmental policy mechanism which intends to prevent, reduce and restore damage to the environment, as well as to regulate works or activities in order to avoid or reduce their negative impact on both the environment and human health. It consists of a technical-scientific study which points out the impact a work or activity can trigger on the environment. The MIA is submitted to SEMARNAT for its evaluation and potential authorization. Once the projects for works or activities have been approved, the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) must verify their compliance with the approved terms and conditions. The Risk Assessment Study is submitted together with the MIA when the activities to be carried out are considered high risk by the LGEEPA.
Preparation of supporting technical studies.
At B+F we seek to expedite the development of projects with high commercial and environmental value, which is why we created a high-level multidisciplinary team which allows us to guide our clients from start to finish. This is how we have the ability and the experience required to carry out, whenever necessary, a supporting technical study (ETJ) in accordance with the General Law of Ecological Balance and Environmental Protection (LGEEPA) for those cases when a change of land use from forest to a different one (agricultural, for instance) is necessary.
Environmental audits and expert appraisals.
Prevention is our best ally, which is why at Bustamante + Freyre we carry out environmental audits for our clients. These allow us to identify possible risks and which areas must be reinforced in order to avoid fines and sanctions by PROFEPA and other authorities. We like being prepared and avoiding any risk and eventuality that could generate losses and damage our clients’ prestige.
