Strategic Environmental Assessment Services -

Mannvit's experience in SEA ranges from:

  • Waste management plan
  • National transport plan

Strategic environmental assessment (SEA) is based on law that has been in place in Iceland since 2006. The aim of the law is to encourage sustainable development, prevent negative environmental impacts and ensure that environmental matters are taken into account when making strategic decisions in development planning.  

Analysing and assessing the environmental impact of plans and projects is important at all stages of development.
