To convert forest lands for the non-forestry purposes, the Forest (Conservation) Act, 1980, insists on prior approval from Central Government. We can provide services and support for forest clearance to initiate projects converting forest lands for national interest.
We can assist our clients to achieve their corporate social responsibility in REDD+ that generates lasting business value while preserving forests, empowering rural and indigenous communities, protecting endangered plants and animals, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. REDD+ improves the visibility of corporate commitments to environmental sustainability across industry associations, capital markets, governments, and civil society.
In recent years, climate change is a burning environmental issue of this century. In order to combat climate change, the Kyoto Protocol by United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has been signed by many countries. According to this protocol, companies in the developed countries can meet their emission targets through the purchase of carbon credits from the market in developing countries. Zmaps can provide consultancy services for companies to reduce carbon emission or to attain carbon credits through clean development mechanisms.
The global climate is changing, and will continue to change, that can affect the planning and day to day operations of businesses, government agencies and other organizations. We guide our various industrial clients to integrate climate change impacts into risk management and other strategic planning activities in public and private sector organizations.
Infrastructure and construction projects require prior environmental clearance from Ministry of Environment and Forest. We can conduct environmental impact assessment study and prepare report for environmental clearance from MOEF, SEIAA and state Pollution Control Boards.
We can prepare environmental management plan for formulation, implementation and monitoring of environmental protection measures which is a part of EIA studies. We identify the key environmental issues across the project and provide strategies and plans for managing them effectively. We also define the legal requirements for the project and identify the regulatory permits and licenses required for starting of project activities.
