What is Environmental Due Diligence?
Environmental due diligence services involve conducting thorough assessments and evaluations of the environmental risks and liabilities associated with a property, business, or transaction. These services are typically employed during mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions, and corporate financing to identify and mitigate potential environmental issues.
Environmental due diligence involves a comprehensive review of historical land use, site conditions, regulatory compliance, environmental permits, and potential contamination risks. It may include activities such as site visits, document reviews, interviews, and data analysis to assess the environmental condition of the property or business.
The primary objective of environmental due diligence is to identify any existing or potential environmental liabilities, such as soil or groundwater contamination, hazardous waste management issues, or non-compliance with environmental regulations. By conducting these assessments, organizations can make informed decisions regarding the risks, costs, and environmental implications associated with a specific property or business transaction.
Environmental due diligence services are typically carried out by environmental consultants or firms specializing in environmental assessments and compliance. Their expertise ensures a comprehensive evaluation of environmental risks, compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and adherence to industry best practices.
Environmental Due Diligence Assessment Benefits
The findings and recommendations of an environmental due diligence assessment provide valuable information for risk management, regulatory compliance, and financial planning. They help stakeholders understand the potential environmental impacts and liabilities associated with a transaction, allowing for appropriate risk mitigation strategies and financial provisions.
By conducting environmental due diligence, organizations can minimize potential legal and financial liabilities, protect their reputation, and ensure compliance with environmental regulations. It also demonstrates a commitment to responsible environmental management and sustainability.

"I came across your videos which were very useful for the ‘Management of Hazardous Materials and Processes’ module that I teach, which includes a section on containment. As many of our students have never worked in industry it always helps to have good visuals/videos to help explain material."
