Environmental science is the study of interactions among physical, chemical, and biological components of the environment. It is an interdisciplinary science overlapping the categories in natural sciences, engineering sciences and social sciences. Environmental science focuses on pollution and degradation of the environment related to human activities and their impact on biodiversity and sustainability. As an interdisciplinary field, environmental science also applies knowledge from economics, law and social sciences.

Environmental science encompasses issues such as climate change, conservation, biodiversity, groundwater and soil contamination, use of natural resources, waste management, sustainable development, air pollution and noise pollution. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of environmental science, teams of professionals commonly work together to conduct environmental research to produce Environmental Statements namely:

-  Initial Environment Evaluation (IEE)

-  Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

-  Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA)

-  Environment Management Plan (EMP)
