Environmental permits

Industrial companies’ production and business processes frequently result in (unintended) negative consequences for the environment. As a company, how do you handle that? Which laws and regulations are involved and how can you go even further than the guidelines stipulate? Witteveen+Bos offers industrial companies advice and support for all relevant processes, as well as providing technical studies related to industrial permits. At Witteveen+Bos, we have extensive experience with all the processes involved in industrial permits – and also in going the extra mile. Our consultants and specialists are familiar with various sectors and operate at the border between environment and technology. Thanks to our experience on both the applicant and assessment sides of permit requests, we are able to quickly map out the playing field and increase your chances of obtaining the necessary permits without delay. The support we offer includes application strategy, legal (im)possibilities, and technical studies on soil, hazardous substances, air (emissions), odour (emissions), waste (water), noise, BAT, and local environment risks.

We can offer you advice on topics including:

  • Environmental impact assessments (EIA) and EIA reviews;
  • Permits for deviating from zoning plans;
  • All-in-one permits (environment);
  • Water permits.


With the coming into force of the Environment and Planning Act, zoning plans will become environmental plans and undertakings will be regarded as separate environmentally harmful activities. Curious what this means for you? Get in touch with us.
