Carrying out of Environmental Monitoring and the environmental factors targeted by such campaigns always depend on the exploitation or production characteristics of each project under consideration and relate specifically to the area where activity is being undertaken. Usually, the monitoring focuses on Environmental Noise Level, Air Quality, Vibration, Water Quality and Landscape.

For all these environmental factors the monitoring plan aims to measure the evolution of the environmental aspects under review, assess the compliance with legal framework and identify the impact of the extraction facility in the surrounding area. It also evaluates the effectiveness of the measures being implemented to minimize environmental impacts.
