The Environmental and Social Assessment process is a planning and decision-making tool for project development. It is used to predict the potential impacts of the project.
GNL Québec submited its Énergie Saguenay Project to Quebec's environmental assessment process, including an evaluation by the Ministry of Sustainable Development, Environment, and the Fight Against Climate Change (MELCC), and the Office of Public Hearings on the Environment (BAPE). The project is also assessed by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA). All stakeholders can comment on the project throughout this process and, in doing so, help to improve it.
To successfully manage the environmental assessment mechanisms, the Énergie Saguenay project will need to comply with all provincial and federal standards in terms of health, safety and environment, as well as worker and public protection. GNL Québec conducts exhaustive environmental studies in line with provincial and federal government requirements.
