UK MoD Defence Equipment and Support In-Service Submarines (ISM) Project Team (via SSMG) required support to design an Environmental Management System (EMS) to meet the objectives of the MoD’s DE&S Acquisition Safety and Environmental Management System (ASEMS) Project-Oriented Environmental Management System Manual (POEMS).
We, in partnership with ISM have established the EMS framework which meets the requirements of POEMS but utilises Claims Arguments and Evidence (CAE) methodology to aid in the production of a holistic Environmental Case approach. Our support included the production of:

National Grid are currently leading “zero-2050”, a multi organisational initiative seeking to develop a co-ordinated cross-sector strategy for achieving net zero carbon emissions for the South Wales region.The UK has a target to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. A net-zero target requires deep reductions in emissions, coupled with techniques such as carbon capture and storage to offset any remaining sources.

The Surface Water Management Plans (SWMPs) outline an assessment of surface water flood risk, recognising the flood mechanisms and economic impact to residential and commercial properties across the catchments of Clacton on Sea and Sawbridgeworth.
The Queensland Government Department of Environment and Natural Resources contracted Buckley Vann Town Planning Consultants and BMT in 2010 to assist the Department with the development of a proposed planning and assessment code and associated guidelines to support the State Planning Policy for Coastal Management currently in development.
