We provide consulting services to tourism companies with marine related activities, to develop Green Transition Strategies.
The environmental impact assessment is a process that allows us to identify and evaluate the impact and pressures of current operations on the marine environment and set objectives. It helps us to answer questions such as:
Is there adequate data about the state of the environment in your area?
Are operations dependent upon a natural resource or ecosystem service?
What are the likely environmental effects, good and bad, of operations?
We also perform a material flow analysis to measure everything going in and out of a company to identify the largest impacts, as well as thorough market research to understand who the end customer is.
To embed the culture of sustainability throughout your team we will create an environmental training module. The training will aim to integrate sustainability seamlessly in your teams roles and responsibilities through advocating for a culture of respect towards the ocean and the environment. It is important that employees are knowledgeable about the importance of reducing the companies carbon footprint and the use of plastics, while reducing the overall pollution and waste and cultivating a better understanding of the marine environment.
Our goal is to equip them with relevant knowledge to share with other colleagues, stakeholders, and customers.
Within your Green Transition Strategy, we will create alternative solutions avoid, mitigate or compensate adverse impacts on biodiversity and the marine environment whilst making the most of the opportunities provided by the natural environment.
We will provide a marine environmental report presenting the processes and outcomes of the impact assessment and alternative solutions.
