From the onset, Impact has advocated operations that safeguard and maintain the integrity of the offshore environment in which we operate.
The key to successful and responsible operations relies on access to latest research and information, consultation with local and international experts, and commitment by the organisation to implement the correct levels of protection. A combination of these efforts allows Impact to effectively acquire data whilst preventing adverse effect to marine ecosystems within the exploration area and environmental sensitivities further afar.
Impact applies science-based risk assessments when undertaking EIA’s and produces Environmental Management Plans that are guided by the recommendations of academic experts, agencies and local organisations who understand and work integrally within their local environment. Often these requirements exceed International standards of practise.
Impact has implemented its own Environmental and Social Management Systems through experience gained in previous surveys. It sets out best practise environmental requirements and operational activities related to on-board HSE, waste management controls and comprehensive communication plans with fisheries and other users of the sea.
