Marine

We provide expertise to manage complexity in marine developments.

At TBC, our small in-house team of experienced marine specialists work across sectors to help our clients address the challenges of development in the marine environment. We can support you to find pragmatic solutions that align with industry best practice and achieve sustainable development.

Against the backdrop of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030), TBC can help businesses achieve leading practice in ecologically sustainable development. In addition to offshore developments like wind farms and deep-water gas extraction, TBC works with a range of large-scale extractive projects that have marine components including ports, refineries and other coastal infrastructure.

We help companies screen and understand the biodiversity risks and opportunities associated with a development, to support project planning and impact mitigation. We can help projects to optimise opportunities for avoidance and minimisation, and reduce the requirement for more costly restoration and offsetting actions.

We believe the marine environment offers businesses unique opportunities to demonstrate leading practice through new and innovative impact mitigation approaches that contribute to national and global sustainability goals. Further insights into our approach to marine risk management can be found in our Industry Briefing Note on marine offsetting. TBC has also co-authored a paper on pragmatic approaches toward better conservation outcomes for marine biodiversity offsets.
