An EIA describes the influence of all business activities on the environment, people and nature. It covers the following disciplines: air, water, noise, landscape, soil, people, health and mobility, biodiversity, ... Possible measures that mitigate or limit the environmental impact to an acceptable level are therefore a major point of interest in the EIA.
Annex I of the EIA decision contains the categories of projects (e.g. business activities) for which an EIA is mandatory.
Annex II of the EIA decision contains the categories of projects for which a project EIA or a reasoned request for an EIA exemption must be drawn up (e.g. urban development projects).
Annex III of the EIA decision indicates the categories of projects for which a project EIA can be drawn up but for which the initiator usually opts to go through the EIA screening procedure. To this end, we draw up an EIA screening report indicating whether significant environmental impacts on people and the environment are expected.
