The department establishment and development process

Since the late 1990s, the assessment of impacts and environmental protection has been put into a criterion for evaluating the quality of investment projects by the State. In anticipation of this trend, the Company has established an Environment Division under the Computer and Environment Department, specializing in the task of preparation of environmental impact assessment reports for power and grid projects which the company is the Consulting contractor.

Along with the growth of the Company and the rapidly increasing demand for environmental and social impact assessment reports as well as other related reports, on July 1, 2013, the Company separated the The Environment Division from Computer and form Environment to the Environment Department.
