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.
