Shell has asked independent consultants to undertake studies to identify potential environmental, social and health impacts associated with the planned exploration programmes in South Africa.
The systematic assessments consider the environmental and social settings, regulations, and the outcome of consultation with affected and interested parties. This allows Shell to plan how to reduce any impact to an acceptable level.
Commitments made as a result of the impact assessment process, will be captured in environmental management plans (EMP) that will be implemented and tracked through the life of the projects and possible operational activity.
In 2010 we started work on an EMP for the offshore Orange Basin license area, facilitated by independent consultants Environmental Resources Management (ERM).
