Environmental due diligence is a process which not only helps an organisation to identify environmental risks, limit liability, or reduce the price of a transaction, it provides the opportunity to identify future performance improvements.

Royal HaskoningDHV’s environmental due diligence services support our national and international customers in mergers, acquisitions and property transfers and encompasses a comprehensive package of environmental risks.

Our scope of environmental due diligence includes:

  • contaminated land liability assessment
  • legislative compliance for air and water emissions
  • waste management and harmful materials assessment e.g. asbestos surveys

A wider scope of environmental due diligence is available, which includes:

  • health and safety
  • flood risk
  • invasive species survey
  • mechanical and electrical assessment
  • assessment of development potential

Depending on requirements, energy supply and carbon assessments can be incorporated into the environmental due diligence assessment, to account for any potential future liabilities, as legislation tightens.

Within our environmental due diligence service, we also offer a commercially focussed product which ensures liabilities are identified and prioritised and any corrective measures are accurately priced.

Environmental due diligence can be revisited through a series of update audits as part of an integrated asset management strategy.
