NEPA/SEQR Assessment and Review
Navigating Complex Regulations for a Sustainable Tomorrow
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) regulations set stringent standards to protect our environment. Meeting these standards requires a thorough understanding of the regulatory landscape and a meticulous approach to assessment and review. At CORE Environmental Solutions, we bring deep expertise and a holistic perspective to NEPA and SEQR processes, ensuring both compliance and conservation.
