General Principles Environmental Management Principles


East Anglia Offshore Wind (EAOW) operate an Environmental Management System (EMS) based on the requirements of IS0 14001:2004, that describes the processes and procedures by which EAOW identifies and manages significant risks associated with its operations. The EMS is a primary mechanism by which EAOW Environmental Policy commitments, such as compliance with relevant legislation and standards, pollution prevention and continual improvement in environmental performance are delivered.


16


The EAOW EMS includes an Environmental Management Framework Plan (EMFP), which provides internal guidance to EAOW Managers on the approach and framework of controls that EAOW will adopt to manage the environmental risks associated with all phases of project activities. The EMFP includes reference to environmental management documents at an organisational and project level including the CoCP.


17


Through the EMS, contractors undertaking work on behalf of EAOW are screened and selected using a variety of criteria that include environmental credentials. Where works have the potential to impact the environment, contractors are required to prepare an EMP commensurate with the identified environmental risks.


18


An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) will be prepared for each major scope of work or project. The project EMP will set out how the appointed Contractor intends to manage environmental risks associated with the construction activities and will set out specific control measures necessary to deliver the requirements of this OCoCP and any other mitigation measures that have been committed to by EAOW that relate specifically to the construction phase of the project.


19


A template for a Project EMP is provided in the ES, referred to as the Outline Construction Environmental Management Plan (OCEMP), which describes at a high level, EAOWs minimum requirements for inclusion within a project EMP and sets out guidance and best practice for adoption at EAOW construction sites.


20


The appointed Contractor is likely to have internal management system requirements and EMP templates, so the actual project EMP may vary from what is set out within the EAOW OCEMP. Site specific sensitivities and Requirements of the DCO along with updates in legal requirements and construction best practice, will also require to be captured in the project EMP.
