Agriculture and Food Ecosystems and Biotops Risk Assessment
To maximise your efficiencies and minimise your damage to the environment and local ecosystems, SGS provide an ecosystem and biotops risk assessment. Contact our experienced team today for an action plan to suit your project.
Biofuel production brings many environmental benefits, but can be equally challenging for sustainability reasons. Biofuels help to reduce carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide. But the introduction of new plantations could affect local ecosystems. Modifications may be needed to existing production processes and infrastructures to ensure the successful expansion of the crop. Crops must also be sustainable for them to be effective for the communities growing them.
Our ecological risk assessment considers these important issues and focuses on protecting the fragile ecosystems surrounding your site. By studying the areas that will be exposed to change – new seeds and crops, chemicals and fertilizers – and using computer mapping, we can assess the potential impact on the local ecosystems.
We also examine the potential impact on human health and groundwater resources.
A robust risk assessment will allow our experienced teams to consider any corrective action you need to take for the success of your site as well as to meet any regulatory needs. Call us today and start examining a range of solutions before your project gets underway.
