Environics was assigned to conduct the Environmental Due Diligence (EDD – Phase I Site Assessment) to evaluate a cable manufacturing facility and its site and identify the environmental aspects that may impact the value or operability of the establishment.
Environics carried out the assessment using the ASTM Standard Practice for Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process (Standard Designations E 1527-00, June 2000).
Based on the assessment, key environmental issues of concern were identified in accordance with the national environmental laws and regulations.
Phase I Assessment entailed the following:
Site reconnaissance, which included investigating the site conditions, such as landuse, operating conditions, and environmental conditions.
Environmental audit, interviews, and documents review, which examined the environmental performance of the facility, covering licenses and permits; environmental impact assessment (EIA); environmental liabilities towards the competent authorities; wastewater issues; workplace conditions and health and safety measures; solid and hazardous waste management, and emissions in the working environment.
Investigating the material handing system and its consistence with the environmental requirements.
