WHAT WE DO
We are working as an Environmental Consultancy Firm accredited by Bangladesh Accreditation Board (BAB) in the field of Environmental Inspection under ISO/IEC 17020:2012 certifications with the highest number of Environmental Inspection Scopes in Bangladesh.
Environmental Impact Assessment
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process of evaluating the likely environmental impacts of a proposed project or development, taking into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural and human-health impacts, both beneficial and adverse.
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as a tool used to identify the environmental, social and economic impacts of a project prior to decision-making. It aims to predict environmental impacts at an early stage in project planning and design, find ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shape projects to suit the local environment and present the predictions and options to decision-makers. By using EIA both environmental and economic benefits can be achieved, such as reduced cost and time of project implementation and design, avoided treatment/clean-up costs and impacts of laws and regulations.
GREENBUD is here to assess your companies Environmental Impact so that you can know that whether your activities are environmental familiar as well as you can ensure your customer about your stand regarding environmental commitments and sustainability.

Environmental Management Plan (EMP)
An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) can be defined as “an environmental management tool used to ensure that undue or reasonably avoidable adverse impacts of the construction, operation and decommissioning of a project are prevented; and that the positive benefits of the projects are enhanced”. EMPs are therefore important tools for ensuring that the management actions arising from Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) processes are clearly defined and implemented through all phases of the project life-cycle.
Environmental management plans describe how an action might impact on the natural environment in which it occurs and set out clear commitments from the person taking the action on how those impacts will be avoided, minimized and managed so that they are environmentally acceptable.
An EMS follows a Plan-Do-Check-Act, or PDCA, Cycle. The diagram shows the process of first developing an environmental policy, planning the EMS, and then implementing it. The process also includes checking the system and acting on it. The model is continuous because an EMS is a process of continual improvement in which an organization is constantly reviewing and revising the system.
The EMP is to provide
- A practical framework for establishing best practice environmental management standards and guidelines to mitigate potential environmental harm for each activity undertaken
- A mechanism to assist managers, supervisors and construction crews to comply with current legislation.
- A means of identifying environmental issues and to provide general procedures which must be considered when undertaking construction activities
- A mechanism to reduce the potential impacts of the construction and operation of the facility
- A basis for establishing environmental due diligence during the construction and operational phases.
In essence, the EMP is to provide to contractors with a practical guide to measure complianceby all parties with the environmental requirements. The EMP achieves this by providing a framework for comprehensive monitoring and control of construction and operation of the facility. The aim is to minimize the potential for negative environmental impact.

Environmental Management System (EMS)
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a framework that helps a company achieve its environmental goals through consistent control of its operations. The assumption is that this increased control will improve the environmental performance of the company. The EMS itself does not dictate a level of environmental performance that must be achieved; each company’s EMS is tailored to the company’s business and goals.
An EMS helps a company address its regulatory demands in a systematic and cost-effective manner. This proactive approach can help reduce the risk of non-compliance and improve health and safety practices for employees and the public.An EMS can also help address non-regulated issues, such as energy conservation, and can promote stronger operational control and employee stewardship.
The primary objective of the environmental management and monitoring is to recordenvironmental impacts resulting from the project activities and to ensure implementation of the “mitigation measures” identified earlier in order to reduce adverse impacts and enhance positive impacts from specific project activities. Besides, it would also address any unexpected or unforeseen environmental impacts that may arise during construction and operation phases of the project.

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Management
Environmental Health and safety (EHS) management refers to a cyclical business process for systematically achieving a desired level of EHS performance. EHS management systems involve planning and implementing the necessary systems, programs and procedures to achieve that level of performance, checking the results and making adjustments, as necessary, to ensure that the desired level of performance is being achieved. It may also be desirable to achieve external certification to an acknowledged management system standard (such as ISO 14001 for example) to provide external verification that the building blocks of an accepted management system are in place.
Initial Environmental Examination (IEE)
Projects in which the requirement for an EIA needs to be ascertained, should be subjected to an Initial Environmental Examination (IEE). IEE is carried out to determine whether potentially adverse environmental effects are significant or whether mitigation measures can be adopted to reduce or eliminate these adverse effects. IEErequires more in-depth analysis than applied in the screening procedure. Consequently, an IEE involves more time and resources.
IEE also requires expert advice and technical input from environmental specialists so that potential environmental problems can be clearly defined. When an IEE is able to provide a definite solution to environmental problems, an EIA is not necessary.
