Compliance should be a top priority for any commercial development team. If you overlook local, state, or federal regulations, you could inadvertently violate pertinent environmental compliance laws, exposing your organization to civil liability and fines. Lord & Winter’s environmental planning services can help your team stay apprised of all relevant regulations.
Our experts ensure the completion of development projects in a manner that fully complies with pertinent local, state, and federal laws. This oversight can reduce your risk of incurring costly fines and insulate your organization from civil liability.
Under federal regulations such as the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), entities that contaminate the environment can be held responsible for remediation costs.
While certain development activities and land uses are bound to cause some level of environmental contamination, environmental planning can help your organization minimize the severity of this contamination.
Ultimately, this will reduce the cost of site remediation should your organization’s activities fall under the purview of CERCLA.
Minimizing your development’s environmental impact will also preserve resources both on-site and adjacent to your land. Lord & Winter’s environmental planning services include an assessment of adjacent resources, including waterways, communities, and vacant land. You can better minimize your environmental footprint by increasing your awareness of these resources and your potential impact on them.
Site remediation and other contamination clean-up efforts can be costly. Investing in Lord & Winter’s environmental planning services can significantly decrease your impact on the world around you. This decrease will ultimately reduce the cost of future remediation efforts and help your business venture maximize profitability.
You could incur significant fines if your development project is unaligned with environmental laws. Additionally, governing agencies such as the EPA may force you to temporarily halt operations altogether. Unexpected downtime can decimate profit margins and damage your brand image.
