Environmental And Social Impact Assessment And Monitoring

Technical, environmental and social risks are often hardly/less visible. Less visible or invisible risks occur at different stages of an investment and often lead to serious problems in terms of managing it.

Escarus conducts a "Current Situation Assessment" for various projects considering many factors such as the planned sizes at the feasibility stage and potential risks, the investor's experience and competence, the expectations of the host country where the investment will be made, and the suitability of the value chain of the investment.

This is a rather significant assessment study for lenders or investors of the project. Because any technical, environmental and social risks that may occur could result in the project failing to provide the expected production results and/or production being suspended or the investor suffering serious financial and/or reputational damage. Any discrepancy that can occur in any of the processes can lead to reputational risks, collateral risks and/or financial risks that will delay loan repayment for lenders and investors.

In order to meet such needs, Escarus carries out technical, environmental and social due diligence and monitoring studies at facilities under construction or operation through its experience in the industry and specialized staff. The said studies can be prepared based on demand and need in the light of both the criteria of International Financial Institutions such as the Equator Principles, IFC Performance Standards, the European Investment Bank (EIB) Environmental Standards, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Performance Criteria and local regulations.
