Environmental Policy & Market Study EMSUS has conducted various research projects contracted by Our clients benefit from: • Standardized business solutions • Legal compliance • Financial savings in overall risk management • Close communication • Market leading service for a greener and safer business environment 3 global corporations and government agencies. These projects include : - Designing a contamination model for a site contaminated by multiple factors / contaminators - Designing a master plan for remediating soil contaminated with a vast number of contaminants - Research on soil and groundwater remediation methods used in the Republic of Korea, and adapting it to the soil characteristics of Korea to improve its efficiency SERVICES Liability and Risk Management Environmental Due Diligence /Regulatory Compliance Environmental due diligence (EDD) is an increasingly important component of property transaction and corporate merger and acquisition (M&A). EMSUS helps clients closely involved in such projects to identify and manage their exposure to environmental liabilities and risks. EMSUS has experience in assisting clients involved in a range of commercial deals including M&A, refinancing, and assessing securities offered against loans. The nature and extent of the investigations are tailored to match the client’s level of exposure. Analysis of environmental liabilities in the M&A context is complicated by severe time constraint, significant uncertainty, overabundance of irrelevant data, lack of relevant data, and in some situations a strong potential for misinformation. Yet, the outcome of the analysis can help determine the economic relevance and structure of the M&A opportunity. ASTM (American Standard for Testing and Materials) E1527-05 and E1903-97 guidelines are internationally recognized and widely accepted as standardized assessment tools in consideration of confidentiality, responsiveness, and reliability. Korean Soil Environment Assessment Guideline could also be applied at the request by clients 4 The EHS compliance audit is also used to monitor the liabilities and risks while the clients are continuously managing the facilities globally. To the extension of EHS audits, social systems audit for corporate social responsibility (CSR) can be added to the scope of work; then, the outcome can be utilized as a tool for advanced sustainability management. Individuals in EMSUS have significant experience in environmental site assessment and EHS compliance audits for a variety of client groups. Our service includes: • EHS regulatory/corporate compliance audits of industrial facilities • Pre-screening/Phase I&II environmental site assessment and data review • Detailed facility site assessment in various EHS aspects (i.e. wastewater, air emissions, engineering, asbestos, etc.) • Waste management audits • Building assessments • Social systems audit SERVICES Liability and Risk Management The mechanism of the remedial investigation is to characterize site conditions; determine the nature of pollutants; assess risk to human health and the environment; and conduct treatability testing to evaluate the potential performance and cost of considered options for remedial technologies. The feasibility study is designed for the development, screening, and detailed evaluation of alternative remedial actions. Contaminated Land Management Our qualified professionals can help our clients to provide the best feasible approach to solve any issues with contaminated land and sediment management. Through our work with regulatory agencies, property owners, new buyers, and/or developers, we develop practical and agency acceptable solutions that help our clients meet their business and sustainability goals when handling their properties. Strategies focused on addressing environmental liability in a sustainable manner include planning, engineering and implementation and needs after remediation. Identifying the desired end use of the property and incorporating appropriate risk-based goals into the remedial approach can provide a valuable tool for reducing the scope and cost of remediation, recovering the value of the property, and achieving a benefit to stakeholders including the extended community. We design our site investigations while considering future land use, potential human health and ecological exposure pathways, and available remedial technologies. We focus on collecting data essential to reaching timely decisions on remedial process. We plan our site characterization efforts with an understanding of our client’s business objectives. As a project progresses, we establish and promote effective and timely communication among key decision makers, so that there are no surprises. Our professional team can deliver the following services: A Human health risk assessment is conducted to find out the linkages and risks between hazardous chemicals and human health. The risk assessment provides the community and decision makers with an understanding of potential health risk posed by contamination in the absence of cleanup. 5 • Strategic development of contaminated land management plan • Decision and cost-benefit analysis • Remedial investigation/feasibility study (RI/FS) • Human health & ecological risk assessment • Remedial process optimization. • Quality assurance / quality control SERVICES Sustainable EHS Management Environmental, Health and Safety Management Sustainable solutions to environmental, health and safety concerns are often best provided by developing and implementing a management system that defines the EHS obligations and assigns responsibility for their completion. The implementation of an efficient management system has been proven to reduce bottom-line EHS costs and increase competitiveness in the marketplace. In fact, we understand the development of EHS management systems as a natural extension of our compliance audit activities. Our approach to our EHS management systems consulting services begins with the existing company infrastructure, organization, and culture. Client personnel at all levels are encouraged to participate in the management system development and implementation process, because we believe that the key to ownership at the facility level begins with involvement. Our team members have significant experience in providing environmental, health and safety management system consulting services as follows: • EHS policy development / culture assessment • EHS management system certification support • Global EHS regulatory support service • EHS benchmarking service • EHS performance indicator development • EHS Training Liability & Risk Management Strategic Advice Efficient EHS management system works as the driver for continuous and sustainable EHS management scheme. 6 EHS Management SERVICES Strategic Advice Advisory Services Customized studies are mostly used confidentially for policy making by government, market studies by foreign investors, strategic management by corporations, and case studies for environmental professional support for litigation. One of key factors for successful outcome is understanding big picture of market and legal system in addition to international regulations. EMSUS is actively working with government organizations and private industries to provide customized advisory services and research projects. Covered topics vary from bench mark research on foreign environmental regulations to technical feasibility reviews. In strategic level, social responsibility is a key component for sustainable growth of a company along with EHS management, and EMSUS can provide a guideline to assist a company to identify the current status of their business operation in light of corporate social responsibility by CSR audit. Accordingly, the company can have more concrete understanding of their organization to set out a vision, mission statement and goal in various levels. Our aim of services is the communication to the client, in the clearest and succinct of analytical terms, of the overall and particular aspects of the EHS liability risk position with thorough, practical and business-orientated recommendations for future strategy. 7 As an emerging market in the world, energy efficient buildings and infrastructure are getting more attention from public, governmental and industrial sectors. EMSUS also can design and form a specialized team to brining the best solutions available in the market.
