Environmental Impact Assesment
  Installations, Permits


The purpose of the integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) is to reduce impact on the environment caused by activities of the largest industrial installations via reduction of air, water and soil pollution, waste minimisation and rational use of natural resources and energy.

Integrated pollution prevention and control requires Latvian industries to upgrade production technologies and to operate in an environmentally friendly manner. This approach also promotes different co-operation with public and municipal authorities, as the enterprise should obtain a single permit, which conditions cover all the following issues: energy efficiency and safety measures, discharges into water and air emissions and waste management measures.

The Integrated pollution prevention and control increases efficiency of the permitting procedure and compliance with the permit conditions.

Integrated permits are publicly available, so the whole permitting process becomes more transparent.

More detailed information on these issues can be found checking relevant entries of this website.
