In order to determine the Environmental and Social Impact Dimensions of the works planned to be performed in the construction and operation periods of İstanbul New Airport Project, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report, which is considered to be within Turkish Legislations, and in connection with this report, the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Report developed in IFC (International Finance Corporation) Standards, which is intended for filling the gaps and evaluating the report within the framework of the international legislations and standards, have been prepared.
With these reports, the present (before project) state of the Project Site has been determined, the significance of the potential environmental and social impacts has been evaluated, and the mitigation measures likely to be taken in order to minimize the defined impacts of the project have been introduced.
In line with the Environmental Management and Monitoring Program specified in the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Report prepared by Ramboll Environ (UK) and the Environmental and Social Action Plan (ESAP) prepared by the Lenders' Technical Advisor (LTA), the Environmental Management Department continues to carry out inspection and audit works with respect to checking of the site compliance with Turkish Environmental Legislation, IFC (International Finance Corporation) Standards, the Equator Principles, and TS EN ISO 14001:2015 EMS requirements, and planning and site application of the necessary actions.
As per the Environmental Management and Monitoring Plan, the environmental engineers have been conducting site applications and inspections (on the subjects such as waste management, water management, air quality management, noise management, environmental consciousness, etc.) under İNA project standards.
In this way, we show maximum effort to transform potential risks into opportunities by taking the necessary measures against potential environmental impacts likely to arise from our works throughout İstanbul New Airport construction and operation activities.
