Premise can also prepare various subplans required in EMPs, including but not limited to:

  • Erosion and Sediment Control Plan (ESCP)
  • Soil and Water Management Plan (SWMP)
  • Stormwater Management Plan
  • Traffic Management Plan
  • Biodiversity Management Plan
  • Groundcover Management Plan
  • Rehabilitation Management Plan
  • Heritage Management Plan
  • Noise Management Plan
  • Air Quality Management Plan
  • Waste Management Plan


We have a strong focus on preparing EMPs that are practical, industry-specific and appropriate to the site and scale of the operation. This approach creates EMPs that are useful and don’t sit on the shelf. We ensure EMPs have clear environmental controls, assigned responsibilities and timing for implementation.

We scope and prepare our EMPs in consultation with the client and relevant regulatory/approval authorities to ensure we meet all statutory and operational requirements, whilst also creating a document that fits into the client’s Environmental Management System (EMS) and business operation.

We are flexible in our approach and will work with a client to create a functional document that is consistent in style, format and structure to existing documentation, where applicable. We can also audit, review and update existing EMPs.

Other types of environmental management plans Premise can prepare include:

  • Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP)
  • Mining Operation Plan (MOP) required for mining operations and soon to be replaced by Rehabilitation Management Plans (RMP).

We have expertise across a variety of disciplines and industries to assist with managing non-compliances, including addressing the cause, finding an appropriate strategy to prevent non-compliances, and preparing submissions to regulatory bodies.

Premise can also assist with compliance audits and environmental audits that may be required by relevant consent conditions, licence conditions or regulators. We experienced in undertaking audits across a wide variety of industries.
