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.

Environmental monitoring and supervision.

We know how important it is to lessen the environmental impact in our clients’ projects, which is why at B+F we carry out environmental monitoring and supervision in order to assess its possible impact and to conceive a customized action plan.

Environmental compliance program deployment.

At B+F we know that our clients are committed to caring for the environment and complying with the Law. For this reason and so that they do not have to worry about the deployment of various environmental actions, we take care of the implementation of environmental programs and resolutions at the federal, state and municipal levels.

Integration of Single Environmental License (LAU)

We formulate the LAU for companies that generate waste, discharge pollutants into the water, air and/or cause noise and vibrations onto their environment, when carrying out any of their activities, regardless of their line of business .

Personnel training and instruction.

Prevention is among our core principles. At B+F we have developed training and updating courses on the environmental-legal field for our clients’ staff members. We firmly believe that this course of action significantly reduces the risk of non-compliance with the Law, as well as fines, closures and any adverse effects.

Development of waste management programs.

At B+F we like to be at the forefront of environmental issues. Besides the basic legal requirements, when creating waste programs we incorporate the concepts of regeneration and circular economy.

Creation of accident prevention programs.

For our clients, the protection and well-being of their staff and social ecosystem is main priority, which is why we design programs aimed at accident prevention and risk reduction.

Polluted site characterization.

We carry out all actions necessary to eliminate or reduce pollutants down to health-safe, environment-safe and community-safe levels, or necessary to prevent the dissemination of pollutants in accordance with the General Law for Prevention and Integral Management of Residues (LGPGIR) and other elements of the current legal framework.

Certification and EHS.

At B+F we realize how important it is be able to rely on professionals who know about Safety, Health and the Environment, so that they can help identify, analyze and eliminate risk situations such as accidents and illnesses. This is why we guide our clients throughout the EHS Certification process.

Equator Principles and IFC Standards.

Always up to date with global trends, our team of experts at B+F incorporates the Equator Principles into our clients’ projects. These Principles provide a framework for financial institutions to manage environmental and social issues related to the projects they finance anywhere in the world and within all industrial sectors, such as mining, oil and gas, and forestry. They are based on the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards and apply to projects above $10 million USD.

Annual Operation Certificate (COA) processing.

At B+F we handle and monitor the COA process, which is used to report emissions and pollutant transference from establishments. We work with the parties required to hand it over, such as fixed sources under federal jurisdiction, large generators of hazardous waste, waste management service providers, those who discharge wastewater into receiving bodies which are national waters, and those who generate 25,000 or more tons of Equivalent Carbon Dioxide (tCO₂e) of Compound and Greenhouse Effect Gas emissions (CyGHE) in the productive sectors.
