We focus on the delivery of good outcomes for business and the environment.
In partnership with our clients, we strive to achieve ecologically sustainable development. Dedicated to finding environmental solutions, we are passionate, well connected and respected.
Elemental provides advice on all aspects of environmental risk assessment. We are well versed in helping clients meet their obligations, so your work programme can progress unimpeded.
In New Zealand, we provide advice on obtaining consents and permits for operations under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act, the Resource Management Act (RMA), and the Exclusive Economic Zone and Continental Shelf (Environmental Effects) (EEZ) Act. We assist clients with their offshore notified and non-notified marine consent requirements. Our expertise also covers onshore services, specialising in solar and onshore wind development, and the environmental and social impacts of renewable energy.
Our team has a global perspective. By tapping into our advisory services you utilise our unique expertise and avoid unnecessary costs associated with the information systems and regulatory processes behind gaining permits and consent approvals anywhere in the world.
Elemental is dedicated to finding environmental solutions for our clients.
We coordinate a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment. We have a rigorous science and risk-based review process that ensures that the appropriate questions have been asked and answered.
At some stage of the work programme – whatever the scale of the operation – you’ll engage with a range of interested parties. We work to address fissures in getting information to stakeholders and we encourage active listening. We provide advice on who to contact when initiating, or participating in, any stakeholder engagement. Beyond making the introductions, we coordinate the engagement process and help all interested parties to have their say.
