We are skilled in a wide range of environmental and social issues

Their expertise also covers a broad spectrum of occupational health and safety (OHS) issues.
We have multi-country expert contacts
We have established and maintained a wide network of international professional contacts. This allows us to engage specialized external experts, based throughout the post-Soviet countries and beyond, in order to meet the context-specific needs of particular assignments. In addition, our networking benefits from membership in various professional forums and associations such as the International Association of Impact Assessment, International Program Evaluation Network, European Network for Strategic Environmental Assessment (ENSEA), and International Society for Environmental Technology.
We are proficient in combining national and international / EU / Lenders’ requirements

We like travelling and working under different conditions
Our staff is used to working under stressful conditions, traveling, visiting sites, and conducting fieldwork in the locations that are sometimes far from the civilized world (e.g. when working with remote communities and indigenous peoples). We are open and sensitive to different cultures, and we exercise adaptiveness and flexibility when working on our assignments.
