History of the unit, basic facts, main areas of activity
The company history spans for more than 30 years. It was originally established in 1989 under the name of POVVIK. Initially the company provided consulting and design services exclusively in the field of water supply and wastewater treatment. Through the years FCG Bulgaria expanded the range of its portfolio, including assessments of environmental and social impacts of investment projects; strategic environmental assessments of plans and programs; audits and due diligences; field surveys; appropriate assessments; collection, processing and analysis of geospatial data in geographic information systems (GIS); Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) permits and other permits related to environmental protection. Since Bulgaria’s accession to the EU, POVVIK has sought to further expand its reach regionally and within the European Community. Thus, in December 2008 POVVIK joined the family of the Scandinavian Finnish Consulting Group (FCG), which is a leading consulting and engineering group of companies in the field of environmental management, institutional capacity building, design and supervision. In 2017 POVVIK changed its name to FCG Bulgaria.
Nowadays, FCG Bulgaria is a leading independent consulting company in the field of ecology and environmental protection, engineering, technical, natural science, social and economic aspects of sustainable development. FCG Bulgaria offers the full range of environmental consulting and engineering services for all types of industry and business, and expertise on environmental and economic analyses to local and state government. FCG Bulgaria is actively engaged in numerous projects funded by international financing institutions such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and development (EBRD), the World Bank, and the European Union programs. The company has proved itself as a loyal, trusted and transparent partner to all its clients.
