Global Food Processing Company, Thailand
SLP Environmental was appointed by a Global Food Processing Company to conduct and report a Phase 1 Pre-acquisition Environmental Due Diligence Assessment for a large Rice Mill located in Central Thailand. The primary objectives of the assessment were to determine the pre-transaction Environmental Baseline Conditions and assess whether there are any potential environmental liabilities associated with the property that could have a material impact on the transaction.
The EDD assessment was conducted in general conformance with the methods and procedures described in the international standard ISO: 14015 on the execution of Environmental Assessments of Sites and Organisations (EASO), published by the International Standards Organization (ISO).
The scope of works comprised of a review of readily available documentation, records & data, confidential consultations with national and local regulatory bodies, a site and environs reconnaissance exercise and interviews with the property owners’ representatives. This information was utilised to undertake an assessment of the environmental sensitivity of the study site and facilitate an assessment of the potential environmental liabilities associated with the acquisition of the land. The reporting included a qualitative risk assessment for each identified potentially vulnerable environmental receptor and an overall risk rating for the study site, as well as recommendations on further works or studies as indicated necessary by the findings of the study.
