Nowadays, environmental issues are an ever-growing concern. With the aim of building a sustainable world, IEP has developed a range of services that allow us to respond not only to legal requirements but also to provide companies with higher standards in their respect for an improved environment.

IEP, therefore, provides environmental consulting services (system implementation, environmental licensing), circular economy consulting, environmental characterization consulting (noise, gas emissions, effluents), equipment and product characterization consulting (energy label, ROHS), among others.

To carry out these services, IEP has a team of qualified technicians at its disposal, as well as the right equipment to allow it to respond effectively to its clients’ needs.

Many of the services offered are carried out by the several accredited laboratories that are part of this institute.

 >  INTEGRATED ASSESSMENT OF LEGAL ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE

Sensible energy consumption in human activities is of extreme importance since these resources are finite, extremely scarce and unequally distributed. Therefore, it is very important to provide tools to support the decision-making process, that also allows the various economic sectors to effectively manage the energy resources used in their activities.

IEP provides UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) remote inspection services. These consist of visual and thermographic inspections, with georeferencing identification, along with photographic and/or video records and subsequent analysis of any anomalies found. This service is extremely advantageous, as it allows inspections of hard-to-reach places or very large sites.
