SLR supports a wide range of local, regional and international clients with Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) services across the power / renewable energy, mining, infrastructure, industry, oil & gas, and built environment sectors.

We work closely with project teams to identify potential environmental and social risks/impacts, and develop inclusive, pragmatic and affordable strategies that avoid, mitigate and/or offset significant impacts and risks.

We believe that our ability to merge technical & regulatory knowledge with extensive practical experience sets us apart from other consultants. In addition to the legislation, guidelines and policies at a country level, our team frequently works with the frameworks adopted by international funding institutions (IFIs) including the World Bank, IFC, EBRD, EIB, ADB, AFDB, AFD, KFW and OPIC. With this knowledge and experience our team supports clients to achieve technical optimisation, regulatory approval, international funding, value adding environmental social and governance (ESG) performance, and social license to operate.

We operate as one team and service clients from our international network of offices and local partners covering multiple countries in Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East. This global reach provides our team with an in-depth understanding of the broader ESG issues that are becoming increasingly important as our clients strive to develop and operate projects that meet the needs of all stakeholders including investors, lenders regulators, NGOs, communities and employees.
