Environmental compliance for projects in California can require months to years for environmental review followed by months and potentially years of permitting. Additionally, mitigation requirements by regulatory agencies can cause design changes with significant schedule and cost implications. By integrating the permitting process with the environmental reviews required by the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), project proponents can optimize the benefits of the public review process and minimize the time, cost, and surprises that may arise during permitting. Serge Stanich, Director, Regulatory Compliance at FirstCarbon Solutions will provide an overview of the permitting process and provide proven strategies for quickly securing environmental permits for your projects.


Join us for a permit streamlining event in Fresno. The discussion will include ways to streamline CEQA with permits from agencies like the Army Corps of Engineers, Department of Fish and Wildlife, etc.
