Decommissioning

Decommissioning reflects an important life cycle phase in any project or operational facility. Careful planning and preparation are required to suitably manage environmental risks and liabilities and to restore sites to reinstate the natural environment. Restoration is also increasingly important in the context of ESG and sustainability performance as we look to manage and restore our natural capital.

Overview
