The Environmental Impact Study or EIS is a document prepared by the developer that contains the information necessary to evaluate the possible significant effects of the project or the company on the environment and allows appropriate decisions to be taken to prevent and minimize such effects.
The EIS is necessary to apply for the Environmental Authorization and to comply with the Law 20/2009, of December 4, of prevention and environmental control of the activities.
In addition, in order to have the Environmental Impact Study it is necessary to carry out the environmental impact assessment of the activity and in TMI it is an essential part of the project that we deliver at the end.
