Environmental risk assessments deal with the probability of an event causing a potentially undesirable effect. Each issue that is entered into the issue register is subject to a risk assessment using the risk matrix presented in the table to the left. This risk ranking is a function of likelihood and consequences of the risk.

Likelihood reflects the chance of risk, or an unwarranted outcome, actually occurring. It can be based on historical data or on an estimate arising from an assessment by a group of persons familiar with the business process being analyzed. Consequences reflects the degree of impact of an unwarranted event.

Our services allow our clients to make sound decisions and effectively manage their environmental obligations, reducing operating costs and liabilities while improving their public image and competitive edge.
