Challenges and requirements
The EU directives which apply when assessing a potential project's effect on the environment have been in force for a long time. There is, however, today an increasing awareness of the directives and an acknowledgement that they require the conduct of additional, more thorough assessments. This results in a more extensive environmental authorisation process and the increased risk of reversals and remissions before the Danish Nature and Environmental Complaints Board. The challenge lies in predicting which demands public authorities will make, with respect to current and future activities with a potential impact on the environment.
How we can help
We have extensive experience with advising businesses and public authorities on environmental issues. Consequently, we have substantial insight into the public authorities' mindset and their procedures. We have also a large network amongst public authority case workers, which we draw upon in complex cases. In addition, we are strongly committed to, and have many years experience in, this field and have key animal husbandry competencies. Finally, as a result of our participation in relevant networks, e.g. DI's Environmental Committee and DI's Forum for Environmental Managers, our understanding of environmental law matches the reality within which businesses and public authorities operate.
Our advice encompasses, among others:
• International Environmental Law
• Marine environment
• Land contamination
• Environmental impact assessment and environmental protection
• Nature conservation
• Waste water
• Animal husbandry
