1. Screening Is an Environmental Impact Assessment required? Screening is done through a formal screening procedure.
  2.  Scoping Which impacts are likely to be important? This is similar to the Goal & Scope definition in many other environmental analyses.
  3. Examination of Alternatives What are alternatives for the project? Can, for example, materials be sourced differently? Also a ‘no action’ option is often considered. This is a scenario as if the project would not continue.
  4. Impact Analysis What are the effects of the proposed project? This is where the actual environmental impact gets evaluated.
    Our EIA is limited to only this specific project in this area at this time span.
  5. Mitigation and Impact Management Which measures could be taken to reduce the impact
  6. Evaluation of Significance Do the benefits of the project outweigh the negative environmental impacts?
  7. Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) This is the report that sums up the assessment. Important: It must contain a non-technical summary that is targeted towards political decision makers.
  8. Review of EIS Assessment of quality by an independent party.
  9. Decision Making and Follow-up Political decision making of the project.
