Environment and Sustainable Development

We provide experienced specialists who can help improve the social acceptability of your mining and exploration projects.

We can also help ensure that your project complies with the strictest environmental standards; for example, we can assess your company’s impact on climate change by measuring the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions produced by your activities. This analysis helps meet the requirements of the TSM program and the sustainable development certification for mining exploration.

Our sustainable development services also include community relations.

Here are the services we offer at InnovExplo:
