EIA & permitting

EIA & permitting

A few islands in the Dutch Caribbean systematically conduct Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) which are required by law, while others conduct EIAs on an ad hoc basis. In some cases, these assessments are based on the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Equator Principles. EcoVision itself conducts EIAs or – in case of complex industries or situations – in cooperation with foreign consultancy companies. In addition, EcoVision assists companies with drafting applications for various types of permits or exemptions, such as nuisance permits, construction permits, maritime construction permits and exemptions from ordinances regulating reefs.
