Environmental Site Assesments (ESA Phase 1), Impact Assements (EIA’s), and product life cycle analysis

*Additional information regarding all Environmental Assesment types can be found at the Ministry of the Environment website, here

Under the Environmental Assessment Act, the Ministry of theEnvironment’s “environmental assessment (EA)” program “promotes good environmental planning by determining and managing the potential effects of a project prior to implementation”. This program attempts to ensures that public concerns are heard and “balances economic, social, cultural and natural environmental needs so that projects benefit Ontario”.

Green Feet is qualified to conduct these necessary assesments and because of the diversity of knowledge within our organization, Greenfeet is able to complete a thorough ESA quickly and economically according to necessary requirements for small scale projects ( <$500,000 budget).

An Environmental Site Assesments (ESA  )is completed to make sure you know the true value of the property and to assure there is no soil or groundwater contamination from previous use or neighboring sites that may be impacting the property’s value or limiting its use due to regulatory-mandated cleanup. Assesments should be conducted any time you purchase a commercial or industrial property.  The Phase 1 ESA survey is also recommended when purchasing undeveloped, vacant land.  If you are buying a house in or adjacent to a commercial area or next to a service station, dry cleaners or other environmentally sensitive business, you should also have a Phase I report performed on the property prior to taking title.

The Phase 1 reports completed by Green Feet adhere to  Ontario Regulation 153/04 in order to provide landowner liability protection and to discover any unknown environmental problems at the property.

ESA’s are priced according to job, but price includes all record reviews, interviews, site reconnaissance and final evaluations necessary to complete your ESA to regulatory standards.

An  Environmental Impact Assesment (EIA) is an assessment of the possible impacts that a proposed project may have on the environment, consisting of the environmental, social and economic aspects.

The purpose of the assessment is 3pto ensure that decision makers consider the environmental impacts when deciding whether or not to proceed with a project. The International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) defines an environmental impact assessment as “the process of identifying, predicting, evaluating and mitigating the biophysical, social, and other relevant effects of development proposals prior to major decisions being taken and commitments made.” (details of this can be found here).
