Environment and Energy
The great majority of companies now recognize that they should be concerned about the environment.

Very much aware of this situation, PKF Attest places highly-qualified professionals at your disposal.

Environmental Risks and Environmental Due Diligence
The purpose of an Environmental Due Diligence study is to determine the entire investment required to adapt a place studied to environmental conditions that are regarded as acceptable. It is an advisable measure in purchase and sale transactions, as the purchaser will be able to ensure that the asset will not lose value for environmental reasons and that additional investment will not be necessary to correct its possible deficiencies.
