KC Harvey is leveraging its growing international experience to launch a new environmental and social consulting practice aimed at providing services to public and private entities who seek financial and technical support from multilateral and bilateral development agencies. We recently added an expert in this field to our team of professionals to oversee this operation from our new office in Washington D.C.
We will focus on keeping various sectors in compliance with the relevant environmental and social safeguard policies and performance standards of their lending institutions, such as the World Bank Group, Inter-American Development Bank, African Development Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Asian Development, etc.
This new undertaking aligns with KC Harvey’s passions, qualifications, and experience. We look forward to contributing our recognized expertise in environmental and social impact assessment and audit to support development projects, policies and programs globally.
We are truly excited to help borrowing entities avoid, minimize and/or mitigate the environmental and social risk that may be associated with their development operations, while enhancing the chance of realizing the project benefits. We look forward to working with our in-country partners to better understand their countries’ operating environments and cultures in order to help us tailor our services appropriately. We believe our participation will help ensure the success of these projects while supporting the development agencies’ sustainable development goals. Through these experiences, we will also grow as a company as we learn more about our friends in other countries with development needs.
