As an environmental consultant, your role is to provide guidelines and information on issues related to the impact of the current or existing transportation systems of the Greater London region, on the environment, and the local population, in particular.
You are presently advising on the replacement of the current transport system. Analyse and discuss how these impacts can be prevented, if not, minimised. At the same time, discuss the most efficient approach in implementing renewable energy systems such as biofuel production and electricity generation that might be used for a new transport system. The new system should confirm to sustainability in relation to economic, social, and environmental issues. By doing so, you may need to establish a monitoring scheme and an enforcement programme.

Overall presentation and structure 10
Your work must be presented in a report format (2,000 words +/- 10%). It is important that your report is properly structured. An executive summary is not necessary in a report of this size.
Your report should include references to the appropriate environmental management for sustainability and development literature (textbooks, journals and websites) as well as appropriate sources related to the oil industry. Care should be taken when consulting websites, they are not all equally authoritative (for example Wikipedia is not peer-reviewed; therefore is not considered an academic reference website). A minimum of 5 different academic references must be cited, but a well-researched report is likely to cite many more.
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the international economic, environmental, legal and social-political issues surrounding environmental management and sustainability development.
2. Critically analyse alternative means available to ensure the sustainable development of transport systems.
